they had already done this for all the Goat Forests, so by now are old hands at it. Again, there was such hope to not fence this part. Interestingly enough, no...there are no workers, like men outside the Home Depot or Tractor Supply. Nope. so far, no chiggers, or any california version thereof. There ARE ticks. But as in N Mex seem only interested in dogs. Not Goats either which is a relief. There also IS the Poison Oak...but that limits itself to dappled areas and you just look before you touch...

that stroller...it's a jogging stroller, will work for a long time...many things. It's big and strong and doesn't tilt on the Hill or the uneven land. Your gift to Emrie arrived just when Alyssia saw it on Craigs List...do you have Craigs List there?, anyway, recycled things...so with what she had, was able to have it. We love it every day.

there is a small seasonal stream. Water travels. I can't say for sure in which direction yet, i think from North to South? It runs along the other side of Carefree Way, the little semi private road that you see in the pic that finally got edited into the last... Continue reading

if i could, i would give every child a day in grasses. this grass is everywhere, all along the roadways, glowing so so green, all of its own accord.

no. they are not dogs. I had a wolf hybrid, such a romantic image, wolf/dog. His name was Winter Sky at Twilight. Sky. I loved him and he loved me. But he would scale an 8 ft chain link fence and run horses. He went to a native man who worked for Fish and Game.

Those holes that meet granite early, need to be chipped with shovel and sometimes a pick axe. Its slow going. there was hope, because... Continue reading

hey, Cheryl!...It's just down and up the way from this Hill...short minutes, maybe 15? I want to take some pics of it....is amazing to me, every time...how the road is cut through granite, the mix of human endeavor and wild forest, the architecture. How the small city its self is surrounded by all the usual businesses of the day, everythingis still very new. I am able to do this Here, in the little travel trailer....sometimes. Internet is off and on, but Alyssia found something called mobile hotspot that we subscribe to and it boosts the connection some. I am unable to work in public places...even sitting in the parking lot at the little close Market..my mind is too permeable...absorbs everything around yes, oro. it was called Ophir but that was changed to Oroville in 1854.

hello back, jaime...family says hello back.... the cell phone, this new one that CAN receive waves from the whereever, yes...pics. the pics it pulls from the Here are just magnificant, but when reduced to accomodate the pull of what internet there is, become so much less than really how it IS but o well....its all ok, yes? yes and all ok. again. they keep saying that this is Winter here. hmmmm. Winter. there is no Winter that i know, but ok. Soon, like any minute, things will change and the whole scene will be different? i am watching, with All of Us....
