NorCal Zen, was launched in May 2017 as an inspiration for mindful living. With the intention of sharing the unique beauty of northern California, while connecting likeminded souls from around the world.
It’s all about experiences, the healing power of nature, and the great outdoors of northern California. Occasionally other western states makes a guest appearance here on my blog, since I love road trips. I currently spend most of my time in northern California, but my neighboring states are like a second home. I have worked at a few ranches in Cowboy Country, (northern Nevada,) and sometimes a story, or two might find its way into a post.
NorCal Zen is about choosing happiness. I’m a 38 year old, homeschooling mom, in northern California. I love books, and read a lot, but believe in learning by doing. Making learning fun for my young daughter is a high priority in my life. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat; mind, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. My German Shepherd is always by my side. Horses is a very important part of my life. I recently purchased a 3 year old gelding, 3/4 Arabian 1/4 Mustang, without any prior training. I love every aspect of life with horses, and many future posts is very likely going to be about our adventures. There’s no better teacher in mindfulness than the horse, since they always live in the moment. I think that’s one of the things I love the most about them.
I have been blogging on other sites for a few years now, but neither of them truly represented the experiences that gives my life value; time with my loved ones, and a close connection to nature and animals. I’m going to write about the zen strategies that works for me. I often participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily Post, as a way of interacting with photographers around the world. I enjoy that very much. Sharing blog posts, and giving feedback is appreciated, and encouraged!
