Heron, Geese, and The Old Wisdom 1/22/14

Flashback 2012 – This is today’s pick photo which shows melting icicles on aspen twigs with the Oquirrh mountains in the background. Hard choice between this one and the one with the brilliant blue sky and maple branches (found in the extras album). Sunday, January 22nd

My last treat for the day was getting a little closer to the great blue heron.

The Old Wisdom

When the night wind makes the pine trees creak
And the pale clouds glide across the dark sky,
Go out, my child, go out and seek
Your soul: the eternal I.

For all the grasses rustling at your feet
And every flaming star that glitters high
Above you, close up and meet
In you: the Eternal I.

Yes, my child, go out into the world; walk slow
And silent, comprehending all, and by and by
Your soul, the Universe, will know
Itself: the Eternal I.
~ Jane Goodall

Our hearts give thanks for the Grace in the Universe!

Namaste ~ Raven
