Things to Consider

Stories, musings, and mind bites to reconnect you to the world around us

Welcome, it’s so nice to have you visit!

On this page you will perch on the sill of a window and peer into the wild. I love to write about unpredictable animal encounters, the beauty of the wilderness, the fabric of the universe.

You may laugh, or you may find yourself contemplating your own mind. You might find comfort knowing you are not alone, and you might learn a new animal fact. It’s a real mixed bag but know that if you reach in, you might pull something out.
