We have ⅓ of an acre, most of which we keep natural for our fellow creatures. A part is fenced though to contain and protect a Japanese garden. Yesterday afternoon we noted movement over the fence, and here is our new friend.
We have four maple trees with red leaves. When grandson was here, he asked how we painted the leaves red. The question made me even more appreciate the variety in nature’s palette.
This is the first, wildest, and wisest thing I know, that the soul exists, and that it is built entirely out of attention.
