WONDERFUL WHISPERS!

whispers 9 Are you brave enough to embrace pure happiness?

What an absolutely marvelous time we had!

My Beloved and I took several days off this week…to recharge…to refresh…to celebrate our September holidays (our wedding anniversary is  on the 21st & my birthday on the 17th). My Sweetheart has a fabulous knack for finding wonderful “getaways” and he hit a home run at Whisper’s Ranch Bed and Breakfast outside Elgin, Arizona, 8 miles from the Sonoita Vineyards where there are lots of wine tasting opportunities! http://www.whispersranch.com

It was beautiful…whis fireplace

Full of delightful touches…whispers 4whispers 6The owner, Toni Leo, is a remarkable woman with a huge heart who devotes herself to providing sanctuary  whispers 1for aging horses , goats,whis goatsburros, whis donkeygeese, and dogs who have been given up by others. Whisper’s Sanctuary is a 501 (c) (3) that the B & B helps to support.  Toni is a psychologist with a full practice in Sierra Vista who miraculously keeps Whisper’s afloat after the sudden death of her husband.

Toni specializes in providing vegan and allergy-free foods for her guests and an atmosphere at the B & B that reflects her compassionate values.

The atmosphere is soooo relaxing–each room has a private bathroom. You can rent the whole house if you want to bring your family or a group of girlfriends. Check out the website and go visit…tell Toni that Albert & Kait sent you!

This is what we experienced:

huge oaks, amazing thunderheads, whis thunderheadand a great time at nearby Parker Lake…where there are kayaks (and you know how I LOVE kayaks!) and little boats to rent.

“Let your line out a little, relax your grip, give yourself some slack” these are the instructions for fishing (and life!)…whis lakeThere were oodles of flowers whis flowersand dragonflies glittering around the edge of the lake…whis dragonfly

 

We spent hours invested in sacred idleness whis kait 3

and found an amazing little creek whispers 14 whis kaitwhere we splashed and laughed and acted like silly kids! whispers 13whispers 18

We visited Black Oak Cemetary where local ranching and cattle families have buried their own for decades, paying homage in special ways to their traditions. whispers 10whispers 11Look what we were able to see and do and experience in just a few days away…not half way around the world, not at huge expense, not tethered to electronics, but in the beautiful, monsoon green, backcountry of Southern Arizona!

So, this is my advice to you–Slow Down and Let Your Soul Catch Up!whis kait 2

 

“I hope you will go out and let stories happen to you,

and that you will work them,

water them with your blood and tears and laughter

till they bloom,

till you yourself

burst into bloom.”

Clarissa Pinkola Estes
