Robbie took this photo of me on my second successful pronghorn hunt in Wyoming five (?) years ago. It is one of the first big game hunting images I ever posted in an online space. I didn’t share the image in an effort to be sensational, I shared it because it was true and something that happened in my life that I learned from, which is what my online spaces are about.
This was good hunting, a hunt I remember vividly and am proud of, and by that I mean I worked extremely hard and the animal I harvested died very well (which is of great importance to me). I’ve learned so much more about how to be and what it means to be a good and efficient predator over the years, and I’m still learning...though sometimes I think it’s less like learning and more like my cells are simply remembering themselves. That which has been sleeping quietly in my DNA is slowly waking and shifting and moving and stretching within the tiny portals of all the things that build me.
Which parts of you lay sleeping? When will you have the courage to shake yourself awake and move more deeply into living?
