The Living Desert-Coyote Dreams

by Lisa November. 24, 2007 4799 views

My friend, Jackie, and I went to The Living Desert [livingdesert.org] on Friday. These are some of the coyotes there.

When I had more discipline and before they “civilized” the bike path, I used to see coyotes on it when I ran before dawn. They would fly by me, both of us looking over our shoulders at each other. But they were a lot leaner than these were.

I dreamt of a golden coyote once. I think it was a warning or an omen about something I feared. And the thing that I feared came to pass…

P.S. The Living Desert is not just a zoo. They are about preserving the wildness of our desert and the species in it. Please read their mission statement [livingdesert.org].

i'm not a rancher or a pet-owner in a gated community on the edge of the wilderness, so i'm sure my thoughts are not pragmatic, but i've always admired the coyote. its trickster designation is well earned.

Wow... what a great set. Interesting about the Golden Coyote and fear. Maybe it was telling you that you would come out on the other side of your fear.
