My hike took place yesterday and normally I would have typed a beautiful tale of my hike through the park. The forest was filled with runners yelling as they jogged with each other, yelling at me to step aside and yelling into their cell phones. I saw many beautiful places and details in the park, but I felt battered by the human noise. I want so much to stop them and say “Indoor Voices Please”.
The saving grace was a lovely walk in the evening with my beloved Rick and then another walk with him this morning. Storms are moving in and I will be happy to hike in the rain tomorrow as it will be peaceful. Please forgive my departure from the usual commentary, I ask you please enjoy the photos of all the lovely creatures I met along the way. When the joggers would leave the area they still came out to see me and for that I feel blessed.
I saw a glorious orange insect on yellow Butterfly Weed, a lovely little squirrel walked over to me so I could take a photo, beautiful wildflowers and fungi accented the forest. When Rick and I were leaving the park this morning a sweet Chipmunk walked up, it was a sweet sight. After a few minutes it peeked around the corner, saw people coming and nearly ran over Rick trying to take cover. It was a wonderful way to end our morning.
Sometimes we forget how to slowdown and listen to Nature, it has so much to say to us.
I send Love to you ALL!
