Do You Hear the Call...

DSC_0050 (Small)

Do you have it?

You know. 

That Call of the Wild.

DSC_0056 (Small)

Over the years I would watch and question those around me. 

Co-workers, family, friends. 

And ask…

Do you have it?

DSC_0048 (Small)

Some wouldn’t know what I was talking about.

DSC_0036 (Small)

Some understood, but didn’t know the power, the lure, the curse.

DSC_0049 (Small)

There are times I wish I had been born without it. 

That I could just “go with the flow”.

DSC_0046 (Small)

But I can’t. 

I won’t.

DSC_0053 (Small)

It’s in my blood, my head and my heart.

The desire, to be, and live among Nature.

DSC_0055 (Small)

I would guess you have it too...
 
Until tomorrow ~ God willing

If this is an "affliction" then I hope there is no cure. Cause if there "ain't no dogs in Heaven, I don't want to go."

Beautiful photos of a wild one!

Were you guys driving a wagon along 66 yesterday? We were headed to the U.P.---I swore (from pics on here) that it was Russ at the helm handling the reigns.....

Thanks GL and Sue. WOW...Sue, you saw our very good farm friends, Pat and Deb. Russ didn't join them yesterday, but they actually went into town and gave rides to dozens of children. Russ usually rides with them every Sunday. Here's a sample, and pics, of their rides together. http://russ-stickacres.com/blog/2009/09/20/our-russ-stick-plan/

Nice photos, I too quite like the outdoors, I just saw your new header of Russ and the dog, it’s a nice shot and the dog is very cute.

Thanks Edward...we have 23 Siberians and Alaskans. They are all unique and very beautiful to us.

Nice new header shot!! Good one. The call of the wild? Mmm! I think we all have it, some accept it, and others dont always know what it is.
