      Default Nature Moments...

      About 7 years ago, I was just arriving at work and saw a beautiful moment in nature, which I will never forget....

      At the time I was working as a groundskeeper on a spanky estate. The estate had a 1/4 mile driveway, which was lined with tall oak trees and pines, brushes of all kinds, stones and boulders and open grassy areas, it even had a little stream on side.....

      I had just parked my Jetta and when I got out of the car and turned around to walk up to the 'big house' to start my day, I was stopped in my tracks, because I saw one of the cleaning ladies driving up the driveway and flying gracefully, just 2 feet above her car, was a hawk....

      It was coasting/flying just above where the windshield and roof of the car meet....it must have been flying above her car for the entire length of the driveway and when she reached the top of the driveway, the hawk proceeded to fly into the woods nearby...

      WOW, that was a moment in nature I'll never forget!

      So, do you have any cool stories in nature to share?

      One of the very first memories I have from my kid-hood...was seeing three dolphins swimming in the Atlantic Ocean.

      I was standing there on the beach looking out to the morning sunrise, *somewhere in North Carolina*, I was three at the time....and there they were...three beautiful dolphins, swimming and frolicking in the warm waters of an earlier morning....and that's all I vividly remember from that trip to North Carolina....

      There are 'power' places all over the earth...special places in nature where you can tap inot her energy and 'just be'! I have been blessed to experience many moments like that Polly...

      We used to holiday in Wales as kids and saw many beautiful things which kids from London would never have normally seen.
      One was a stone circle which is where it is believed the blue stone for Stonehenge came from...top of a mountain and completely isolated and for a short while, I was transported somewhere else in time! Absolutely freaky for a young teenager but it kinda confirmed what I had felt all my life!

      Another place was here in Ireland and a friend and I did a walking tour of some low hill/small mountains and it was so magical! I wrote a short story about it and may post it one of these days
      When you are lucky enough to find these places and you her calling you, relax and just be and be at one with her...you will never need drugs or alcohol ever again!! It is the most exsquisite, magical, mystical and natural feeling you will ever experience!!!

      I find the Lake District in the UK is like that, whilst walking on the mountains you feel as though you are in another world, so isolated and peaceful..

      Although I live in a city, where I live is still very active with regard to 'wildlife'.
      During the daylight hours I enjoy sitting/standing on my balcony watching the various birds. From black hawks and tiger hawks to cardinals and blue jays to swallows. In the very early morning hours, deer and rabbits are abundant.
      But what is most special to me are the pair of large owls that live in this area. When night is at it darkess and most silent, They call out to one another, like sentinels in the dark. And often I've walked out onto my balcony at night to find one of them perched not even three feet from where I would stand. And I softly speak to them with sincere grattitude and respect. And they sit there and watch me as I do this, as if listening to my words. Or at least sensing my grattitude and respect for them.
      p.s., Owls are one of my three 'Totem Animals'.
