Strength in Size? A Lesson in the North Carolina National Forest

"What are you doing out here all on your owney-o?"  wee creature on Asheville NC conservation land
~Diana Gabaldon,
  from her novel, A Breath of Snow and Ashes  

 

JT took this photo while we were out previewing conservation acreage for one of our land legacy clients earlier this week.

As you can see, it was a frosty day-the evergreens, dusted with snow,  forming  a living lacy border for the mountainscape, our wee, but mighty dog seeming even smaller on the trail. . . 

When I saw the photo JT took, immediately I was captured by the visual metaphor. That tiny dog-Friend. Those enormous trees. And the vast mountain range.

Does strength reside only in size? No, such boldness must be prompted from someplace deep within. . ..

And I wondered  how many of you have ever felt like a tiny creature "out there" in the wilderness all on your owney own... 

only to  understand, anew,  that deep impulse, that overriding sense that you are safe simply in the living moment, knowing that you are woven, without a shadow of a doubt, into the fabric of the web of life that connects All . _______________________________________________________________________________________________

Hi janeAnne - I have, and do, feel like that tiny creature out there on my owney own.....I'm still trying to find that 'sense that I am safe'.  That's been missing since, well you know, and I just am not feeling that sense of 'safe' must at all.  I would like to.....

Dena~

Yes. Possibly we are looking at the "power in numbers" concept and then at the "you are ONE PERSON who can make a difference" ...and then recognizing, in both situations, that it may all have to do with intent...
