Albert’s Squirrel (Mt. Lemmon) — Image by kenne

Abert’s squirrels live, nest, feed, and seek refuge from enemies mostly in
Ponderosa pine forests, but also can be found in mixed coniferous forests
where they are likely to have been introduced by humans.

All Abert’s squirrels have prominent ear tufts and long, bushy tails.
During the winter, ear tassels measure about an inch in length
(thus the nickname, “tassel eared squirrel”) but become shorter in summer.

You should always know when

you’re shifting gears in life.

You should leave your era,

it should never leave you.

The Flower That Smiles Today   Leave a comment

The flower that smiles to-day
To-morrow dies;
All that we wish to stay
Tempts and then flies.
What is this world’s delight?
Lightning that mocks the night,
Brief even as bright.

— from The Flower That Smiles Today by Percy Shelley

so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous.

Sweeping Away Illusions   Leave a comment

A Hiking Break On The Box Camp Trail In The Santa Catalina Mountains — Image by kenne

He sat on the pine needles
Next to a medium size pine
Pondering the moment
Sweeping away illusions
Before contiuing the hike
On the Box Camp trail.

How may we overcome the fear of birth and death
and arrive at the state that is as indestructible as a diamond?
What way can direct us in our practice
to sweep away our thousands of illusions?
If the awakened mind shows its compassion
and opens up for us the treasure store,
then we may bring into our lives
the wonderful diamond teachings.

— from The Diamond That Cuts through Illusion by Thich Nhat Hanh
