On my morning walk and communion with nature, after stopping several times to just enjoy the multitude of Pine trees, I eventually arrived at my turn-around point.
There is a stone circle there with lush green grass growing about. I was standing in the center of the circle in quiet contemplation when I sensed a nearby presence. I opened my eyes and looked down and slightly to my left just as a beautiful gray squirrel appeared. He glanced at me and continued slowly on his way, walking right by my foot and showing no indication of nervousness or fear of me.
Just one of nature’s little wonders.
