Guides Along the Path


I came upon this little green monk praying in the middle of the trail atop the Deer Island Preserve last evening.     She was kind enough to share that her essence embraces peace and mindfulness.    Whereas the grasshopper I encountered in almost the same place several days earlier encourages moving forward with great leaps of faith, the mantis favors thoughtful calculation as we proceed through the world chaos that will be with us for a while yet.     To be successful, it is likely that a combination of both approaches is required.   She rode along on my sleeve for about a quarter mile to make sure I wasn’t lost.
