Lest you are left with the impression that it was all pain and suffering ...
This photo was taken while on a family trip to Yosemite, with Bob standing above, and the third reason for facing into that violent political storm of those years, Dorian, being introduced to pollywogs. In looking back, she has attained so much over time, and today has achieved a level of independence hardly dreamed possible back then.
Because we've had the good fortune of living into the future that our cruel sacrifices at that time were helping to produce, and to have done it consciously and with a purpose, looking back has detoxified so much of what we lived through that those experiences have formed the basis of my work at the Visitor Center. For reasons unknown, I've been able to transform the inner rage into revealed Truth, and through that process, am pretty much at peace in a nation still at war with itself.
Little did we know that I would spend these end years as a national parks ranger.
