Got something on your mind? Love letters? Hate mail? Not one for public comments? You can email me at

It always makes my day to get a question, or a comment from a "virtual stranger", so I'd love to hear from you.

 However, I'm somewhat terrible about checking and replying to my email, so bear with me.

Also please note that I do not take paid advertising or c/o products for my blog at this time for the foreseeable future of mankind.  Thank you. 


  1. Hi there! I love your photos! I'd be honored if you would consider posting about this social media campaign we started just three days ago. It's the Supermodel Astronaut Challenge which encourages women and girls to embrace the statement "I am enough" and quiet the voice of the media inside their heads. We are encouraging them to recognize how much negative self talk is a result of being constantly exposed to the unattainable ideals presented by the media. There is a fun music video with the basic message and I also wrote a Supermodel Astronaut Manifesto explaining in depth the challenges women and girls face in today's culture. Our point is that REAL women and girls are Supermodel Astronauts for all they do each and every day and if we can stop focusing so much on what we think we SHOULD be, it will free up a lot of head space to celebrate what we ARE.

    You can find out more here:

    And here is the manifesto:

  2. I discovered your site last week and was inspired by your title. I made a mental note to go back to it over the weekend when I had more time to enjoy your posts. I came upon this instead. I thought you'd enjoy it since you love bears too. Thanks for your blogs.


  3. No sé si entiendes el español. En cualquier caso, mejor que si escribo en inglés...¡Mi inglés es TERRIBLE!. Llegué a tu blog por casualidad y me quedé por afinidad. ¡Me ha gustado mucho!. Vivo en una ciudad, pero añoro una vida en los bosques que me imagino mucho más real y libre. Y conozco esa zona de Estados Unidos donde estás, estuve en Seattle de viaje hace años y también dos veces en Oregón. Ojalá algún día pueda volver...He dicho que había llegado hasta aquí por casualidad, pero quizás me han traído las huellas de un oso, porque yo también escribí sobre eso en mi blog hace unos meses:
    Un saludo. Seguiré leyendo tus aventuras. :)
