Nature quiets the mind by engaging with an intelligence larger than our own.
The Scales of Nature will always seek equilibrium.
A feather can tip the balance.
That resonates with me. On this Sunday morning, I worshiped God in my tabernacle, God’s great outdoors. Yes, “Nature quiets the mind by engaging with an intelligence larger than our own.” I watched yellow Butterflies on orange-color Cape Honeysuckle; I watched a female Ruby-throat Hummingbird sip nectar from blooms on my recent purchase Texas Lilac. I’m guessing it was the same Hummingbird on my Impatiens, Cape Honeysuckle, Butterfly Bush and Mexican Petunias. She checked each red, and pink, vase or bottle on my bottle bush. No pictures; my camera was indoors.
Mid-afternoon postscript: I watched the frog scale the metal pole and maneuver his body around to climb the side of the bird house. I watched… and did not run for my camera. I may never again have the opportunity to photograph…but I didn’t want to miss the event.
Another extremely beautiful Fall day.
