Been away from Ohio for more than a month now. It's only been a short time, but it feels like I've been in Alaska for much longer. I've heard so many people in the past month say they came to Alaska for different things; usually to forget something hard or to remember something lost. That's the beauty of this state - you can do both here.
Yet it is these fleeting tastes which come both through beauty as well as loss, that cause us to become so bereft, so agitated, so longing that we eventually must pursue the wildish nature. Then we leap into the forest or into the desert or into the snow and run hard, our eyes scanning the ground, our hearing sharply tuned, searching under, searching over, searching for a clue, a remnant, a sign that she still lives, that we have not lost our chance. - an excerpt from "Women Who Run With the Wolves" that really resonated with me. (Truly a fascinating book about the female psyche and the archetype of the Wild Woman). 📷 @ohnoradeo
