One with nature

My latest 30 day challenge had been to meditate outside for 30 days. My inspiration came from Martha Beck’s book Finding Your Way in a Wild New World.  

Let me say I don’t think it was just a coincidence that by the end of the 30 days my hubby was calling me CFR (Cinda-freakin-rella). Not all of the animal sightings were during my meditation. It was just kind of like the meditation was calling them to me. Here are a few of the shots I got during the 30 days:

A few of my favorite moments couldn’t be captured on camera. I noticed a tiny orange tabby kitten on the side of the road during this time. I brought the poor frightened thing in to my truck where it proceeded to hide underneath my dashboard. I had to enlist the help of my friends at Brookwood Vet and good thing I did. This 6 week old kitten had found a home before I even left there. And, for those of you that have followed me throughout my year of hugs, do you remember that time when I drove 2 hours away at 5:00am to try to find a Bobwhite or at least hear one for my then 4 year old? It was his favorite bird and the research I did pointed to a park two hours away to be able to find one which we never did. Well, within 5 days of beginning this challenge we heard one in our backyard. I almost lost it. He called about 5 times. The first time I was stunned in to silence. The 2nd time I yelled for my oldest to shush so he could hear it. By the 4th time he was thoroughly freaked out not knowing what I was so excited about. By the 5th time I had told him what it was and he was just as excited as me. I had never heard that bobwhite before, nor since.

I have never been quite so in love with the world as I am at the moment.

Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.


One thought on “One with nature

  1. it is so much fun to be awake and aware of all that’s around us and supporting us on our journey… uh, but be careful what you imagine…. 5 calls from the Bobwhite is nice… all freaking night is another! LOL Just goes to show how one persons’s good experience is another’s nightmare. Nothing good, nothing bad. at the same time all is good and all is bad… depends entirely on your own perception and that is determined by your thoughts… Glad you’re having fun and tickled you’re sharing your experiences with us all… hugs
