Looking Through a Porthole

Every once in a while I find a porthole in Nature, usually a spot where a tree has grown with twisted branches that looks like a small opening. Actually one’s mind can really soar through a porthole to adventures beyond.

The remainder of the old dead tree was covered with mushroom-like growths. It looked ugly and at the same time beautiful. I thought of people that may have some type of a deformity that might turn others off until they look under the surface.

I chuckled when I saw the game camera’s picture of turkeys walking in a straight line socially distanced. I am aware that over the past year and a half people have been socially distancing for safety and the turkeys provided a great way to see humor.

It is Halloween and the spirits are free to pass in and out of the earth’s plane through the opening into the earth across the valley. I believe ancient shamans held a special ceremony on this night where they travelled into dimensions.

A Visit From a Big Boy

We recently checked one of our game cameras and discovered several unexpected visitors on the drive to the orchard, including a big male moose. The moose have had a hard time lately with ticks that suck out their life blood. Nice to know many survive.
