As a registered ICU nurse, I like to ask my elderly patients all sorts of important life questions. I ask them things like what was the best decade of your life? If you could do one thing differently, what would it be? and the one I find the most interesting: what is the key to […]

As I sat next to the crystal clear turquoise river that shapes the various waterfalls of the Supai Nation, and I began to think : is the river the water, or is it the rock beneath it? Is it the substance that flows over it constantly, always coming, always leaving? Or is it the solid, […]

Just a Feeling…

Just a Feeling…

September 19, 2017

This thought was had at about the half-way point of a 10 mile hike down into the Grand Canyon… If I could leave my children anything, tangible or not, I would leave them a feeling. The feeling you get when you first begin to hear the waterfall you’ve been hiking so long to see. The […]
