Living on the Edge

Maybe a Lake View Wasn’t Such a Good Idea?

I am not an adventurer by choice, but by fate. ~ Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890)

This tree took root on the edge of a rocky precipice. Will there be a plunge into Lake Michigan in its near future?

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.


  1. I’m always amazed at how long those trees can hang on to the edge of a rocky precipice.

    Nice shot. 🙂

  2. This tree is quite brave, though it could fall tomorrow or stand for another 30 years. Nature is a real fooler. 🙂
