Nancy Quinn's Western Zen


Nancy Quinn's Western Zen


These are some inspirational thoughts I use to help myself. The landscapes here on the mountain are so lovely and uplifting, they often put me in a reflective mood.  I can always use a few extra moments of peace, and a deep relaxing breath.  I hope this video brings you the same kind of feelings.  I believe it's is another gift from Montana, and our life in the modern wild west.

Mercurial Mother Nature, Summer Hail Storm



The Summer Storm


I had to wonder, What the "hail" is this? I listened to the crashing and banging sounds on the roof our home. The frozen ice chunks fell viciously from the sky to the ground.



I was worried about the horses, they ran into the tree line instead of seeking shelter in the barn. When they emerged, they were covered with ice, but unharmed.


                                      


This is how much ice accumulated on the ground after the storm was over.  It was just another summer day in Montana.

The breathtaking Sunsets of Montana.


The Montana Skies



Visit our Montana mountain homestead, and view the gorgeous sunsets from our front porch.  Every night, I look to the sky for the ever-changing glorious patterns of light and shadow. Take 2 minutes, a deep breath, and enjoy these color drenched skies.

Cimarron is the name of the home featured in my books, "Go West, Young Woman!" and "Stay West, Young Woman!".

If you enjoyed this video, I suggest you watch Ep: 5 "Montana Sunsets" on my YouTube channel, Nancy Quinn-Life in the Wild West.
