Fall has arrived after a very busy summer of improvements both inside and outside. The pond is finished except for final landscaping. The barn is being prepped for future workshops and retreats. The cabin, with new wood flooring and screened-in porch, is more cozy than ever. And, a number of trees have been cleared to give others a chance to grow. The result is that there's more depth of vision and more sunlight through the forest. Also, there's more paths to walk in quiet contemplation, too.
In watching a little black squirrel on a high, small branch hesitate, then jump to another small branch, I thought that we should all observe the lesson: Take a leap of faith! You'll be fine.
