It was sad
but it had to happen
she wasn’t gonna stay here
not meant to be
she is a beautiful, annoyingly optimistic woman
with joy in her heart
and love comin’ her way
happy trails to a true cowgirl!
PS – The photo is of some peaceful greenery at Lake Wilson, where Sus and I used to walk,
enjoying the warmly crisp, fall North Carolina weather.
She is John Muir of the 21st. century
Listen to her talk; speak, about nature. I learned a whole lot
that’s what happens with friends
She knows her stuff.
learning from her, was a beautiful Thoreau,
hands-on, Science teachin’, environmental badass ex-teacher
soon to be Eugene, Oregon waitress
gypsy spirit pagan buddhist,
meditating mountain mama.
tree hugin’ hippy
goddess earth queen
She’s gonna be missed.
worth repeating: she’s gonna be missed
