The trickling sounds of gently falling water captures my heart and draws me into the edge of my forest. The little stream proudly displays itself as winds down the mountain from places unseen. As it makes it’s way to the river it playfully tosses the leaves and twigs where it may. The small streams have always carried a childlike spirit of innocence to me. As it flows through the forest floor and over the various stones the sounds of the the stream are more like giggling in my ears. I’ve always imagined that the water tickles the roots of the trees in mischievous play. It would be a challenge indeed to see if you could make a mighty oak lose it’s composure and laugh uncontrollably. And perhaps the odd creaking and groaning sometimes heard in the forest is just the way they laugh when a creek tickles their feet. And then somewhere in the forest the creek forms small pools where a magical jelly springs to life and becomes a school of tadpoles and the red eft waits patiently to change it’s color and return to the aquatic world that spawned it. Somewhere that’s not too far from the water but higher up on the mountain a small clay chimney rises from the leaves. This is where the blue crayfish dwells. Though seldom seen today they roam the dry land and return to their holes only to rest. And only a little farther upstream a doe takes a drink from the fresh cool water and waits in the thicket for the little one to join the world in just a few weeks. All are connected by the playful little stream and perhaps it giggles because it knows all the secrets of the forest.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
