Quite a bit of time has passed since my last post, depending on what kind of time you go by. I have changed my website name to haltsart.com which has been long overdue. Life changes and new developments have led to new directions and flow. It is a honour to be here and I look forward to this new path. Thank you for your patience, and I hope you are doing well wherever you may be. A reminder, take the time to be with Nature, if that means a small park in the cityscape, that will do. Take care of your being and in doing so life will reflect this back to you. And now Hälts presents an original new short ‘the DEER’ with soundscape ‘winter soul’. See you soon.
As spring springs, so to does Mahaloness find clarity in the montane, specifically the East Kootaney of British Columbia. It falls within an area referred to as the montane cordillera ecozone (including south central BC and SW Alberta, Canada). Here you can encounter a diverse range of geographical splendor, plant life, bird life and things that are fuzzy. The air is clean, and the sky a crisp cobalt blue. Here water flows as the snow melts, replenishing the river systems, carrying their cargo to far away shores. It is also a time well spent with the older generations, although worlds apart, nature brings us together without pretense.
fotoMahaloness – so here we go, from a poppies transformation to a nature walk in the BC Rockies, where streams bubble, providing a vital and universal ingredient to the all life on this planet.

enter the forest
spot the swallowtail butterflies
a Bob Ross kind of cloud, a happy cloud…
a friendly visitation between species
water doing its thing
and when hiking drink plenty of water and be mindful when you are in the mountains, there are lots of big fuzzy things and stuff you wouldn’t want to tangle with despite what television shows, or movies depict, it is beautiful country with the real possibility of showing no mercy, there’s plenty of good books, outdoor programs and online resources to learn more about Canadian back country hiking and the Rocky Mountains.
