As I sat quietly on a rock enjoying a peaceful morning, I heard munching in the tall grass. I grinned, always delighted when animals are close. After a while, this lovely rabbit crept out, cautiously assessing his surroundings.
And he stayed for a while, eating, unfazed by my presence, though I knew he was very aware of me.
And I had a thought…maybe the Earth and Her nature beings appreciate human company. Maybe that’s why I feel so welcome in the natural world. To me, being with the Earth is like being with an old friend who knows you inside and out, and loves you for exactly who you are.
Just before the rabbit disappeared into the brush, he stopped and looked at me and I looked at him.
And I thanked him for his company as he hopped off to continue his busy rabbit day.
My heart smiled…
