Fox

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Wiley, curious, handsome/beautiful, loyal, these creatures cross my path often.  Fox seem like the perfect combination of cat and dog – a wild and free version.  I’ve read that they keep the same den for multiple generations – roots are important to their tribe.

We have a den nearby and a red fox that passes through often. I hope he enjoys his home here near ours.

The photos in the gallery above are all of red fox even though their colors are in a range from black to beige, with a nice red in between too!

Love when these curious, intelligent, four legged, grace my day with their wildness and questioning faces…

“Men have forgotten this truth”, said the fox.  “But you must not forget it.  You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.”

The Gift of the Trees

Night Sky, January

Out here in the woods, the tree dance brings a welcome, hearty, and ever changing song.

Season to season they stand in place and in witness of all of life’s wonder – a constant teaching.

 “A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship.  But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease.                      -John Muir

 

February 7

“Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive.  When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is  truly important becomes whole and sound again.  When men reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.

-Antoine de Saint-Exupery
