“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
My morning meditation went longer than usual today.
When it was over I stood at the edge of our verandah, looking out over the garden and the paddocks beyond.
Suddenly a glimpse of bright red caught my eye. And another. And another.
I looked up. There were no trees bearing bright red berries. What could these tiny red dots possibly be?
I went down onto the lawn to investigate and discovered that they were tiny red mushrooms. I can’t explain why, but this made me furiously happy. They are so unexpected and sweet and beautiful and fairy-like.
I love that nature continues to surprise me. We are surrounded by miracles and magic. All we need to do is slow down and be in the moment.
Much love to you, Nicole ❤ xx
