When I reached the Carriage Road on Hot Springs Road I felt something hit my head. Looking down I spotted a nut exposed within its husk. Tiny little teeth marks artfully etched into the rough surfaces. Suddenly pulp rained down on me followed by green husks.
I looked up to see beautiful little squirrels hanging, leaping and foraging in the leaves above. A leafy disc shaped nest to my right seemed to be their home. Mom must have turned them loose to find a breakfast feast. It was glorious to see the energy and joy of new life in the Forest. It was a blessing to bare witness to the the beauty of Nature’s children. Their joyous abandon was a message to my Heart.
It was the perfect way to begin my wonderful hike across Hot Springs and North Mountains. G-d opened my Soul to creation and guided me along my path as I moved through the Forest. Never miss an opportunity to have an adventure :)
Love to ALL!
PS Please remember the drought is still raging… do not bring fire into the Forest.
