There is just something so beautiful, so luminous, so serene about light filtering through the shade of a woodland canopy. It’s both breathtaking and soothing, calm and exhilarating. It fills me with peace. It’s where I long to be.

What’s lost is nothing to what’s found,
and all the death that ever was,
set next to life,
would scarcely fill a cup. ~ Frederick Buechner


Boys and girls: Beware!

Deep in the woods there lies a snake-like creature with deep-set, steely eyes and a long, pointed snout. It has a rapacious appetite and will devour anything in its path. While this vile predator prefers rodents such as mice, rats, beavers and even prairie dogs, it especially craves small children who don’t clean their rooms and disrespect their parents. When this type of game is out of season or otherwise unavailable, this loathsome monster is content to gobble up the leaves and brush it finds along the forest floor as it patiently seeks out more succulent fare.

Enter the woods at your own peril. I’d turn back if I were you…
