What I did today.


I went outside to my special place in the woods and planted daffodils. It is a little late in the year, but it is so mild in the south this year, I thought I would try. I then had this overwhelming desire to lie down and feel the earth beneath me. The woods were so alive today. The sky was blue with puffy white clouds floating by. The wind picked up and I heard it caressing the tops of the trees. I laid there and watched the tree tops dancing and twirling. Birds were singing and then they became quiet, within a short time three hawks circled above were I was lying, then off to find other prey. When they were gone, the birds started singing again. Amazing experience. I feel grounded tonight and very calm.
