Keeping in the Cows


Primitive Fence © 2007

If you strive for the moon, maybe you’ll get over the fence.
James Wood

The only fences found in Door County, WI are either rows of piled stones from field clearing or these wooden criss-crosses from forest clearing. Probably only effective for cows since at least they can’t jump (except over moons.)

Photographed in Ephraim, a hamlet of 400 people who tolerate 6 months of lake-effect, northern Wisconsin winter for 6 months of simple beauty.

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.
