...I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.

Patagonian Dream - Part I

House built by Martin. The view from the top of the roof (though not very high from the ground) was spectacular. Mountains in every direction, field of lupines, horses galloping freely, dogs going mad chasing the horses, kids from the neighborhood playing soccer...Not a bad place to sit and daydream if you are not as clumsy as I am. I was doing just that, daydreaming, and fell off the roof. Good thing I have meat on my bones. Didn't break a thing!
Coyhaique, Chile

Mate time with the gentlemen.
Folks at Minga Alegre were incredibly generous and kind. I was just a stranger passing through, but they opened their doors and welcomed me into their home and community. They offered me homemade bread and endless cups of mate. Coyhaique, Chile

Last December, I migrated south to Chile and Argentina to escape the excruciatingly long and brutal winter in Alaska's arctic. The photos above are all from Coyhaique, where I was WWOOF-ing. More to come!

In Alaska, autumn was over by August...I am migrating south, where I can see and feel the sun and its warmth.

I have been on the road. The photos above are some of the places where I stopped to stretch my tired body, breathe in fresh air, walk around, admire the mountains, sit by a lake, rest under a tall redwood tree, daydream...and act like a 10 year old girl around baby dwarf goats.

I Love Alaska

Beautiful day in the arctic
Migrating birds
Midnight sun on summer solstice

A herd of musk ox (with babies!) came over to my house one day.
Cute little guy :)
I can honestly say that this place changed my life. Here, I feel alive.
