Into the wild

 I am not here in this life to be well balanced or admired. I’m here to be an oddball, eccentric, different, wildly imaginative, creative, daring, curious, inventive and even a tad strange at times. I’m here to (roam) and (learn) and (love) and (dream) and find (magic) in a blues riff, a sunrise, a touch of the (wild). I’m here to discover ME in all of that. I’m here to add clunky, chunky and funky bits of me to the swirl and swagger and churn of life and living. It demands I be authentic. So when you look out at the world, that’s me (and my dogs) dancing in the fields…
