Rysh means ‘community’ and this page is for my Rysh and loved ones whom I break bread with and share space with. Rysh was also the name of a canine companion that accompanied me through almost a decade of traveling and projects that are posted on this website. She was the nanny to my children, best friend to me, and a being of great heart that protected us through thick and thin.
Also residing in my Rysh is my beloved horse Lady D (Lady’s Crystal Divinity) and her companion herd retired Thoroughbred Fawn, Justin the Morgan, Little Lady the Buckskin Quarter Horse, Leah the Shetland, and Sheba the mini-horse. Recently adopted from our loved neighbors who had to return to Australia two mini-donkeys Nick and Cuss. Adding to the barnyard fun is our four mini-goats – Pan with horns and his harem Pan-dora, and Mandy. like him. 6 females and 1 male plus Mama and Papa is 9 in our pack.
We of course also have a human tribe – some permanent residents and others who flow in and out of the Rysh but are deeply connected even when they are satelliting around gaining experiences and wisdom from healthy ‘Walk-A-Bouts
Rysh lineage goes on through what I now call the Rysh Pack. Shyann and her 7 Rysh pups: Ursa, Windra, Chato, Osa, Shakti, Azja, and Kyra.
