The Rabbit Hole - Amid the passage of time I feel all the more fortunate to have been born in 1966, and all the more appreciative of my family roots and paths traveled. Wild Love Preserve is a life story and a story of life, reflecting our humanity, our interconnectedness, the continuum and our responsibility to the whole. This project connects dots as it mirrors my being, my truth and my art. As in life, people come and go, interpret and mis-interpret, and make presumptions based on their own stories versus hearing new truths. There is calm, and there are wildfires. One constant remains a beacon: staying the course no matter the surrounding waters. As with any truth in being, a project of this nature requires one to man the ship no matter the storm, what others think or say, do or don't do. At the end of the day the voice which resides within one's core is the absolute compass to follow.
As founder of nonprofit Wild Love Preserve, I am delighted to recognize our 5th Year Anniversary and express appreciation for those those who have supported this project in a multitude of ways. Down the rabbit hole I went five years ago, unsuspecting of the depths that lie ahead as result of keeping my word with Idaho wilds that happened upon my path. At that time I welcomed a momentary distraction from multiple years in hospitals with my mom. I had imagined my assist to be a quick turn around, however this trajectory organically evolved into what has become a monumental project. I have been pleasantly surprised to find support often comes from the opposite end of the spectrum, and equally surprised by the cutthroat behavior of the least suspecting.
