A Treasured Moment

Winter of 2018. I am just regaining my legs after three years bedbound. Ric, forever the problem solver, proposes that we put wheels on the bedroom and drive south. Doctors write me a report to accompany our journey, and we head out in November. It’s a struggle at first and I’m doubting my ability to follow through with the plan.

Then we reach Arizona, and one day, under the bright blue sky, we come upon a place that will forever remain in my heart as a turning point: Coon’s Bluff along the Salt River, where the wild horses roam.

(Submitted for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: special moments. Thanks to Tina for this prompt that sent me digging in my archives. A wonderful moment to relive.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Sometimes, or should I say many times, heart should step into the outdoors to bask the wonderfulness of nature. These captures speaks for themselves about how much enjoyed your trip 🙂

  2. This is a place I hope to go before summer’s heat (some year, not this year) – thanks for posting this, reminding me! We need an Arizona Springtime now that Gary’s no longer tied to school schedules. (But not this year … )

  3. well that WOULD be an amazingly special moment V.J., and your memory of recovery being tied to the beautiful encounter making it even more so. I’ve not seen horses in the wild despite several attempts. Your image makes me realize I must keep trying!
