I have taught the ways of the wilderness for well over thirty years and have authored a novel which dives deep into the shadows that follow you as you traverse wilderness trails. It is my hope to reach as many people as possible to tell everyone that the wilderness is not a place to be wary of. It is the only place where a person can dig deep into their soul and find that which is hidden to them by modern day society.

Lunch Time In the Wild

 Wildlife in wilderness areas are very aware of their surroundings. Any disturbance within their sensory range will evoke an instant reaction. 

The secret to remaining neutral, is to lower your energy signature by controlling your emotional state. Your excitement will trigger a flight response in all the wild ones. Unless of course your photographing a chipmunk; Those little creatures know they are cute and use it to their advantage. 

I always try to carry a camera with me when I am out and about. This is simply to ensure I have the ability to capture the moments when one of the wild ones decides to make an appearance. 

This video displays some of those random moments when I have been wandering and a denizen of the forest allows me to share it's space for a few fleeting moments. 

I am not a photographer, most of my digital captures don't merit a second glance; but, they do rekindle memories which allow my spirit to wander when my body is trapped in the world of humans. 

Happy Wandering.

Bug (Out!) Shelter

I love wandering the forest in the summer. There is a palpable energy which entwines itself in my soul; calming my mind and restoring my balance.  

The only negative thing I can say about wandering the woods is the friendly neighborhood blood suckers; mosquitoes. These insects will plague your walk and force you into flight mode if you can't accept their presence. 

If you plan to take a break from walking, plan to stop in a open area where the wind will keep the insects at bay, or carry a shelter with you which can be erected in moments; this will allow you to take a break wherever and whenever you wish.

Happy wandering!
