"Live in another realm. . .

". . . make sure there are birds."

So says Susan G. Wooldridge in her new book, Foolsgold.

I first learned of this book while reading Kari's blog. And then I found reference to it again on Jill's blog, and also on E.B.'s blog. It is a great book, it accompanied me on vacation, and I highly recommend it.

We shared our realm at Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, with deer.

And chipmunks.

Strange mushrooms with matching beetles.

And lots of family (Jordan and Kim in the canoe.)

Nieces and nephews in the tree.

And sisters gone wild. My sisters and me (in the middle).

"Watch any plant or animal and let it teach you acceptance of what is, surrender to the Now. Let it teach you being . . . how to live . . . "
— Eckhart Tolle

A good time was had by all.
