Highlands and horses and dogs, oh my! Chickens and kitties and snakes? OH MY!
Enjoyed a fantastic writing retreat last week at Whiskey Belle Ranch with Shannon Baker and Wendy Terrien. We worked hard on our books, laughed a helluva lot, and shoveled poop–real poop!–horse poop, that is.
Things did get riled up when Bubba the bull snake slithered into the chicken coop to cop an egg. Twice. But we corralled him, relocated the rascal, and carried on with our critter care while also writing and brainstorming.
Thank you, Bob and Alanna for sharing your amazing Ranch!
(And thank you, Wendy, for sharing your fabulous photos.)

Idles the night wind through the dreaming firs,
That waking murmur low,
As some lost melody returning stirs
The love of long ago;
And through the far, cool distance, zephyr fanned.
The moon is sinking into shadow-land.
The troubled night-bird, calling plaintively,
Wanders on restless wing;
The cedars, chanting vespers to the sea,
Await its answering,
That comes in wash of waves along the strand,
The while the moon slips into shadow-land.
O! soft responsive voices of the night
I join your minstrelsy,
And call across the fading silver light
As something calls to me;
I may not all your meaning understand,
But I have touched your soul in shadow-land.
