Splashes of Color in an Otherwise Neutral Landscape

Winter –

img_1679If there is snow we see a season of white

Otherwise we see shades of brown and gray

But walk slowly and look closely

and you will see colors of spring and summer

The Eyes are the Window to the Soul

When William Shakespeare saidThe Eyes are the window to your soul, he was no doubt talking about the human soul. To equate a soul to an animal can become quite a contentious debate. Having spent my adult life in stewardship to our Mother Earth I absolutely believe all her children have souls. When I look into their eyes I see their connection to the earth, an understanding of this place they call home. Their connection is often deeper than ours. They are part of a web many of us have turned away from. Take a moment and try to connect as they do.
