Inspired by Dorothy Wordsworth’s 1800-1803 The Grasmere Journals, Mule Springs is an online journal about life on our farm in Eastern Oregon. Ms. Wordsworth, the poet William Wordsworth’s sister, captured brief moments of her days living in England’s Lake District. Mule Springs is a similar effort at what is now called prose poem, flash or short nonfiction pieces intent on capturing moments for the reader to see inside one person’s ordinary life surrounded by animals and nature in the 21st century.
Here are some pictures of the main characters mentioned in the Mule Springs journal.
Professor Skookum, Gypsy, Cowboy
