Vento Nature Sanctuary *  Summer 2019
*Jaspar’s and my
place of:
WOW JOY adventure,
attending Nature’s continuous offerings of wonder and awe,
and
a beautifully quiet haven of solitude
throughout ALL four seasons.

The FLEUR DE LIS drawing was my FIRST work created
without the physical presence of JASPAR OBI
underneath my studio table.
 His HEARTFIRE energy is forever in my heart
and
for ALL who he met and blessed.

JASPAR OBI

24 February 2019

X

Every time I x-skied through Vento Nature Sanctuary,
Jaspar was WITH me.
Kayaking on the Mississippi River, x-skiing, fat tire biking, swimming,
looking at the stars and moon,
laying beside me through multiple orthopedic reconstructive surgeries
– his sweet warm body and his breathing was my solace,
his presence/energy under my studio table as I dove
for the dark star energy of a pearl buried
in the sea of my imagination
– he was always there as I dove deep
and
when I emerged with a silent glistening pearl waiting to be heard.

ALL that is AWE and WONDER.

X
X

 

JASPAR OBI aka ‘DUNKIRK’

X

My RAF K9 Adventurer
– my unrepeatable TREASURE HEART.
Jaspar in Persian translates to TREASURE.
Obi in West African translates to HEART.
I named him.
And, that names our story together
as will my memories of him be:
treasures in my heart.

X

Jaspar’s death story is an ecstatic,
revelatory, beautifully LIFE story of
FREEDOM.

X

He is teaching me
about my expectations,
my hard-wired fears
and
my limiting projections/forecasts.
This voyage is teaching me about the opportunity in crisis:
the real choices in framing
our perceptions and participation
in our life events,
in our relationships,
in our internal world
and
in our external world.
Opened by LOVE’s vulnerability and adventure.
Closed by FEAR’s walls chained to trauma.

Dancing in the grey, in the glow, in the love of God’s grace.

X

He is also showing me,
as I listen to his song,
I know to enter the deep-
adapting, improvising, overcoming.
 
The ultimate courage
is being vulnerable,
compassionate,
surrendering with an OPEN heart
to Nature’s mysterious, wondrous song

IS

– the wonder and awe of actively choosing to
be a/live
in the moment
and
living authentic love’s 

FREEDOM!!!

X

 

X

X

X

Jaspar Obi is still living HIS story

with God’s GRACE LOVE and God’s will.

I surrendered.

I am on the voyage.

I would celebrate Jaspar’s  DAY by tying

The Trio Eagle Cam – Devotion to her eaglets ~ April 27, 2019

 

 

I watched the trio of eagles daily.
The offering of witnessing the ‘story’ was a gift, a blessing.
The eaglets have since flown away.
The video above was a powerful testament of devotion:
the Mother as the shelter in the storm.
I am grateful someone archived this specific event of fierce devotion and instinct to protect.
