Our eyes meet, our souls speak, beyond words, beyond any other human understanding.
A connection so beautifully rare, no matter the trials this life may try.... the universe would not dare to sever the line that binds your heart with mine. ∞
"E così passarono quasi vent'anni.
Il Proibizionismo cominciò e finì. Arrivò la Grande depressione - e durò così a lungo che la gente iniziò a pensare che fosse la normalità. Ci furono la Guerra civile in Spagna, un Roosevelt alla Casa Bianca, un pazzo scatenato in Germania, mentre ai Goodnough non successe proprio niente. Laggiù era sempre lo stesso lento grigiore. Edith e Lyman continuavano a fare quello che avevano da fare e Roy continuava ad agitare i suoi trovi moncherini.
Mio padre ed Edith non si videro spesso in quegli anni, anche se credo che si pensassero ancora molto. Mio padre non li aiutava più durante il raccolto, Roy non lo voleva fra i piedi e aveva iniziato a barattare il sudore di Lyman con l'aiuto di qualcun altro quando arrivava il momento della mietitura. Quindi tutte le volte che mio padre ed Edith erano in città e per caso si incontravano in Main Street - si fermavano a chiacchierare di cose senza importanza. Solo una o due volte mio padre le chiese: Stai bene?
E lei rispose: Sì, e tu?
E mio padre disse che sì, gli sembrava di stare bene.
O ancora - e questo capitava più spesso - quando mio padre stava lavorando vicino alla strada e sentiva un'automobile avvicinarsi, si tirava su per osservarla e, se era quella dei Goodnough, prima che il mulinare della polvere la facesse sparire, notava Edith che guardava fuori dal finestrino. Poi mio padre riprendeva a lavorare senza dire una parola, ma era evidente che la sua bocca si contraeva come quella di un cavallo sul morso". Kent Haruf, Vincoli, @nneditore
Sono tornata a Holt, Colorado, alle sue origini, anche se in Italia questo romanzo arriva per ultimo. In un mondo a sé, dove la vita scorre nel niente della quotidianità o in grandi tragedie che non hanno nulla a che fare con la Storia. Un romanzo bellissimo, come tutti gli Haruf.
Why do we wait?... ⠀
When it comes to taking care of US, why do we have to put SO much thought and effort into doing something for OURSELVES?!? ⠀
I am Soooo guilty of this ALL of the time! It’s SO bad that even if I tell myself “I am going to buy this because I NEED IT” could be something as simple as face wash or makeup and then I will get to the store and have a overwhelming feeling of guilt like “nah you don’t REALLY need that, you could just get the kids something extra” or the husband... WHY does it seem so hard to do something for ourselves?!⠀
I have a amazing husband who always tells me GET IT! With whatever I am wanting/needing and me being me, I still won’t get it because my brain is stuck on “what can I do or get for everyone else instead”...⠀
I only learned this from hearing it recently but it stuck so hard because I realized how true it was in my own life and that was... Are you guys ready for this?...⠀
“YOU CAN’T POUR FROM A EMPTY CUP” que mind blown emoji... 🤯 I sat back and re read that again...⠀
“YOU can’t pour from a EMPTY cup” ⠀
that was profound and so true to me because my eyes are always set on my kids, my husband, the house, daily tasks and things that need to be done that I had been trying to pour from a empty cup and it was causing me to not be able to pour into my family the way I totally yearned to!⠀
Us as ladies tend to have our eyes focused so tightly on our beautiful families that we lose site of ourselves in the process and begin to run on empty which then turns into not being the REFRESHED pleasant mama’s we would like to be.⠀
It’s crazy how a simple little thing like getting a haircut 💇 or just being able to get fully ready before going out with the family! (You know mom is running around finding missing shoes, fixing the kids hair, making sure the littles clothes match or finding gel for your teenagers hair⠀
Then everyone is running out the door and you didn’t finish getting ready so (guess I’m gonna go Like this) happens? Who’s been there more than once? 🖐🏼⠀
There’s nothing wrong with pouring into our families! We do it because we love them oh so much! But mama’s remember to pour into YOU as well. ⠀

Fast forward 6 hours from yesterday’s photos, and this was the scene!
I had hoped the mountain lion would be there. It made sense for it to be there, but when I got there I didn’t see anything. That was to be expected, of course, because what are the chances you would see a mountain lion twice? Even if it should be/has been there. I turned around so I could pull off the road, and set up my camera for the wait. I had about an hour of light left so there was plenty of time, but the second I put the camera out the window it’s face peeked out from behind a rise to look at me. I started taking photos and shaking with adrenaline again. I feared I would scare it off again, but after a brief staring contest and full buffer on my D500 it carried on with its meal. The snow was now coming down pretty good and the wind and magpies/crows/eagle had all gone leaving just the mountain lion and me in silence. This is definitely one of the most incredible scenes I’ve ever witnessed. Not only did I never think I’d get to experience something like this, I never even let myself imagine this perfect of a scenario. After about 15 minutes watching it somehow got spooked, and it was now obvious he was uncomfortable with my presence as he tried to drag the elk away. When that failed, he hid under the tree again. I knew those were my signs that it was time to go, as the first rule of wildlife photography is to never cause stress to the animal. I took a quick final few photos, and looking back as I drove off, I saw him head back to the elk in peace.
