|Crescent Beach, Salt Creek Recreation Area|
Port Angeles, Washington
"The Sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach -- waiting for a gift from the sea."
- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

a wild rose looming at the edge
of thicket, grace, and light.
where yesterday was only shade,
and once again I am blessed....

"Listen, God love everything you love - and a mess of stuff you don't. But more than anything else, God love admiration.
You saying God vain? I ast.
Naw, she say. Not vain, just wanting to share a good thing. I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.
What it do when it passed off. I ast.
Oh, it make something else. People think pleasing God is all God care about But any fool living n the world can see it always trying to please us back."

Oklahoma/Texas State Line
What a spectacular send-off this morning as I make my way to Orlando to meet the crew and guests for TCS World Travel's Around the World by Private Jet Expedition. I'll join two other expedition staff and 80 guests for an eight-country journey around the world - ending back in Orlando 23 days later. This expedition marks TCS's 250th jet trip. Stay tuned as the destinations are unveiled one at a time.

In celebration of World Rhino Day 2016 here is one of my favorite rhinoceros encounters (well, one which did not include having to run for my life...twice) taken in Kenya while working as a citizen scientist for Earthwatch.
My god these are magnificent beasts - and it is hard to imagine that they will most likely no longer exist in the wild in my lifetime. This is a real tragedy. Click here, World Rhino Day 2016, to follow the WRD celebrations around the world and meet the protective organizations in need of contributions. #poaching #rhino #extinctionisforever #Earthwatch #citizenscientist

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
16 September, 2016
This is Bandit - a very serious Australian shepherd that guards the farmstead at Settlers Creek outside of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. His business is not so much with humans as it is with the deer, elk, bear and porcupines that might trespass his territory at any moment. I was allowed a two-second pat on the head and nothing more! "Can't you see I've got a job to do"! Hey, I'll take my dog fix any way I can get it when I am traveling.

|Ayers Rock - Uluru|
Red Centre, Northern Territory, Australia
Interesting to note that this sacred red rock and the sacred pink granite mountains of the Wichitas in Oklahoma are the same age (550 million years old) and about the same height above sea level (2600 and 2800 feet respectively).
