Wild Gray Goose

Celtic tradition identifies the Holy Spirit as a Wild Goose. He is the wings of a Wild God best followed by the wildest of men. I'm gray. I'm wild. Like He, I am not always predictable, rational, or safe. I believe my full life and my still maturing years of Walking With God offer both heart and substance for younger lads to consider. Now with 4th stage prostate cancer, following the Wild Goose has a different pace and perspective worth reflecting on...and sharing.

I'm a young fella not far from 73 who's made it to the far and frayed edges of the adventures I‘ve been hankering for since boyhood. The age thing and my pursuits are relevant since I now have advanced 4th stage cancer, moved from unsuccessful chemo treatment to oral med...and they seem to be working. Now, after selling the ranch, my beautiful life-mate of 48 years and I live and travel in an fifth wheel RV we call our "covered wagon". The new and rich development of 2012 is our purchase of ranch in the marvelous plateau above GRAND JUNCTION at the head of the Colorado National Monument where my young family with six children run a whole-family therapy ranch, DEEP RIVERS FAMILY RANCH.

Strawberry--M&M--Oreo Shake...and 12.5

Ok, we're keeping the wild and gray for this old Goose, but let's pretend the Challenger heading up to rescue the GENDADS site still floating in the blogosphere is serving Strawberry--M&M--Oreo shakes on the way up. That's the hook for the date I conned my grandson, Taylor, in to for going with me for that generational fathering chat. I'm a contributor on the Legacy Dad blog and decided to put my story there while awaiting the premier of Matt's and my GENDADS blog in a week. Hurry. It's a bit long, only 1000 words, and a test of the length blog readers will accept for a story-telling. www.legacydad.com. Comment back if at all possible.
