The before and after
As I prepare to return to the ranch soon - a year after the fire- your article immediately brought back all the feelings of that time. The grief and the tears, the sadness and the gratitude/appreciation/love I feel for the land.
In many ways that visit- with the earth still smoking from the fire - broke me open in ways unimaginable... All the grief I was holding in my body from recently losing loved ones - poured out of me... and a recognition that the fire - and the lost of all that we hold precious - is not an ending, but an invitation to pivot and begin anew. A new dream, new vision.
I look forward to returning to the ranch - anew..💜
Heavy-hearted I sit here a bit in shock. I remember following this fire closely, yet I had no idea how vast is was, how utterly devastating it would be. Thank you for including us in your healing, your modeling and teaching us that's it's OK to be vulnerable, raw, exposed and true. I'm inspired by seeing how your intimacy with the land was your guide, and continues to deepen as you work with her regeneration. This gives me hope. She is coming back! I touched those trees. I felt the life there. So much love to you and your land. To each tree and each new sprout.
