I have a friend and mentor who lives in a tree house.
Or I should say a house high in the trees.
She also happens to love, care for and feed the birds.
Four little Bluebirds come to her when she calls and it is feeding time.
She has lots of bowls of fresh water for them to drink and bathe in.
And happy flowers grow everywhere!
And plenty of homes for them to live in.
They are happy to live in her little sanctuary.
They are content and so am I when I go to visit.
Just to sit and talk and be with nature.
And have nature watch us back.
They patiently wait for their daily feeding and fresh cool water.
Why hello there!
Everything thrives in her wonderful care.
That's quite a cigar mister............
.....really it's a meal worm!
This little Nuthatch loves to hang upside down.
Sit for awhile in the shade of the Oak trees and Dogwood.
Grab a cool drink or maybe two.
Ponder life and the beauty of nature up high here on the mountain.
Grab a snack if you like.
Or just puff out your chest and enjoy the warm sun.
My friend, thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven with me today!
"So this is how you swim inward.
So this is how you flow outwards.
So this is how you pray."
