Jordan Lake Rescue: Grayced: A new addition to my Facebook pages:
Hello! I am Grayced. I am Doc Ellen’s companion. We met 5 years ago at Jordan Lake. I was hungry, very hungry and hurt. Doc Ellen was hurting too. Doc wrote a great story about our journey together and filled it full of pictures (they are good even if I do say so myself). We want to share with you the history and the ongoing story of our lives together. So, you can meet with us in two ways: 1) join us on Facebook as I get my paws, um, Doc’s fingers on the keyboard on a regular basis to update our time line and 2) read about our history in the eBook Jordan Lake Rescue: Grayced – it is available for iBook and PC at http://www.dreamingsongsphotos.com. Ok. I am all groomed. Have gotten Doc’s fingers all limbered up and ready to type by tossing my favorite ball for me. We are glad you are here with us!!!!! Come by my Grayced the Cat site at www.facebook.com/GraycedCat/ and please continue to visit Doc and the eagles in the Jordan Lake Neighborhood https://www.facebook.com/docellen/
BTW, my Doc Ellen’s Journey will continue – am not replacing it with the Facebook page!
Ever so often someone asks me: Doc, how did you end up at Jordan Lake chasing eagles. Here is the story of how Jordan Lake became a place of healing and refuge for both my body and my heart. Grayced was a starved and badly injured kitten that I found underneath a pickup truck at a boat ramp at the lake. This abandoned kitten and I, a veterinarian whose career was abruptly shortened by injuries, journeyed together as we re-learned life skills and grew contented with where our shared path has taken us. Companions on a trek toward healing – Grayced from his many injuries and me from the results of a serious vehicle accident. There are moments of light, laughter, veterinary medicine, tears of hurt and a lapful of cat purring the aches away. This is the beginning of Doc Ellen’s Jordan Lake Journey as I began building a life as a wildlife photographer and journalist.

I will be making a ten percent donation of royalties from the sale of Jordan Lake Rescue to the NCSU Veterinary Medical Foundation. This program supports veterinary students at the veterinary college as they learn the skills needed for outreach programs such as spay and neuter clinics.
Oh, my. I have just been invited to talk with Frank Stachio on The State of Things, on WUNC radio 91.5, public radio. We will talking about my Bald Eagle eBook and my eagle observations at Jordan Lake. I hope you have a chance to listen because it was the interest each of you gave to my work that inspired me to write a book about the lives of the Jordan Lake bald eagles. The interview will be Thursday, July 13 at 12:40 PM. I surely hope I don’t let the bald eagles or any of you my dear readers down!
peace and grace, doc ellen
