Quotes

“For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.” — Henry Beston, The Outermost House

On a recent visit to Yellowstone National Park, enroute to this year’s A Walk on the Wild Side event and our ceremonies with the animals, I did what many visitors do—I went browsing in the gift store. I was sure there was nothing I needed, so what harm could …Continue reading

My Queen Kiya

My Queen Kiya ©Rose De Dan 2009

Kiya first appeared in my life as a very sick four week-old kitten that was covered with fleas.

Those Empty Spaces

Rose and Puma

Since my dog Puma crossed over in June I have received many lovely expressions of understanding and support from readers, neighbors, clients, students and friends.

On two separate mornings I opened my front door and discovered that neighbors had stopped by and left beautiful handpicked flowers from their gardens along with heartfelt sympathy cards.

Evening Walk on the Wild Side at the Zoo

Answering the Call of the Wild ©Rose De Dan 2011

Many years ago I answered a call from the zoo animals. They asked me to gather the people and bring them, so that we could work together on reconnecting people and animals.

Saying Good-bye

On June 6, 2012 I said a final good-bye to my beloved dog, Puma. His age was somewhere between 13 and 15, a very ripe old age for an 82 lb. dog, and his back and hips could no longer support him without pain. His passing was very peaceful, and when I pushed myself to go …Continue reading

Primitive Cats

The weather today has been variable, to say the least. First gray skies, then huge fluffy snowflakes, wet snowflakes, sleet, rain and, eventually, brilliant sunshine with blue skies. Welcome to Spring!

Once the sun came out to stay for a while I opened the front door. The insulated storm door makes the front entry an ideal sunning …Continue reading

Yellow Rose and Fly in Garden ©Rose De Dan 2012

Current shifts in geopolitical, economic and global climates, and wildly varying interpretations of the Mayan calendar have created a lot of speculation and concern over what will happen in 2012.

A Wild Way to Heal

While my 2010 and 2011 encounters with Earthfire Institute’s Animal Ambassadors during A Walk on the Wild Side: Answering the Call of the Wild were very powerful, the proof that they were more than very cool experiences came afterward.
