Down The Rabbit Hole

I take it WILD, my “nature cocktail,” with a slice of Rugged and a pinch of Barely Accessible, straight up.  Never could stay on a path, unless it’s one the deer have mashed out with their cloven-hoof comings and goings.

Oh, I still whine about the ticks, the thorns, the burrs speckling my khakis, but secretly – I like it.

Those lesions and adhesions symbolize, for me, an initiation rite… When I’m brave enough to bare my back to Nature’s slicing and sunburn, a “wall” seems to open, revealing a hidden world.

It’s as though I’ve been accepted into an exclusive community bustling with animals, birds, insects, all going about their business as though humans were merely a mild curiosity, nothing to mind.

It’s an Alice in the Rabbit Hole experience, something you can’t plan for.  But if willing to take the dive, the glorious “Unknowing” is wilder than dreams.

Here are a few pics from some of my excursions into Nature’s Wonderland.  I know your experiences are equally wonderful… please share them with me!
