A stop in the park helped me slow down and re-energize. I found a quiet place next to the river and sat down.
First I saw a Groundhog having a snack. I peered over the thistles growing next to the river and spotted a heron standing on a rock in the river. I sunk down into the grass, hoping to catch a quick nap. Mother Nature was having none of that.
A Kingfisher flew right by me! He startled me. Since I was awake, I started to really experience the slow movement of nature and caught a butterfly and two honey bees sitting in the thistles. I watched the clouds march across the sky and small yellow leaves swirl from the trees.
Another Groundhog trundled into the meadow. I guess he wasn’t done with his supper. Then a hawk circled as I watched the clouds turn into animals and fish!!
