Everything We Need to Know We Learn from Nature

Living in the great Southwest in Sedona, I am blessed to be surrounded by nature. A mild change of seasons allows things to evolve and grow and live and die and return again. A wave of color in predictable patterns comes and goes from season to season. Nature teaches us how to live by the way nature lives. What's the lesson of this cactus flower in the grey grassy red rocks? 

Life is too short to hide yourself away. Don't hold back. You never know how important you are in the landscape of your life.

Predator Dream

I saw you there.
You and your true colors.
I had fallen in the street
And dropped all of my pencils
And hurt myself
And my pride.

There you were,
Laughing at me
As you crossed
To the other side

In dreams
Fear can devastate.
In dreams
Courage can shine

For once in my life
As I stepped upon the curb
I could look you square in the eye
And call you a jackass.

from the book "One Heart's Journey"
