A Wise New Friend

As we were driving home from our town chores today I was telling Taryn how I hadn't been meditating for about a week and my body wasn't all that happy about it. Then when we got home she went down to put the goats to bed and I went out to water the gardens. When I got to the pond there was this beautiful frog sitting there. It didn't seem to mind me coming into it's space, so I decided to spend some time with it.

Then I thought, boy it'd be nice to get some pics of the little Beauty so I called to Taryn who was back at the house now to bring me the camera.  Just look at the cute little fella or fellerina.

Well the frog kinda had me locked in with it's eyes so I decided to stay awhile and just hang with it.

It became very contemplative and at one point when I asked the frog just what it was doing....I got a whole bunch of answers all at once.

Well it wasn't doing anything...it was just there...that was the point. But it's there was quite a ways beyond the periphery of it's cute little body...
AND while doing nothing but being there it was also enticing in bugs with it's breath that it was making into a little stream for them to follow back to it.  Very Interesting....

And before you knew it I was just there..... and breathing....and making a  path with my breath for the mosquitoes to follow back to me...

Then I was just there....but quite a ways beyond the periphery of this body I'm carrying around (or vise versa).... and the view kept changing and I swear I was looking through the eyes of a frog.....
And my body was happy...

  1. You have a wonderful way with words. I like frogs too- my favorite are the spring peepers. There is nothing more wonderful than falling asleep in spring to the songs of the peepers down in the marsh. "Peep peep...peep peep".
