Herds of horsetail and cow parsnip

Herds of horsetail and cow parsnip

Nary a moo or whinny at the McDonald Forest! Some ironies in Nature really make me smile after walking these storied trail miles.  My thoughts go to pasture with the plants, old soul growing in the same sunlit universe.

    I went running today – in one of the Lake County Forest Preserves. It was so beautiful – and I must say i saw a lot of the old souls amongst the youngin’s I was thinking about that, quite a bit actually – i kept thinking about life and the metaphor between between the plants and the ‘humans”. In many ways I saw myself as one of the old souls.

    • What a wonderful moment to share with me, my friend! Isn’t it amazing how Nature can strike the same nerve miles apart? Just goes to show its powerful presence in our lives. Our society likes to label things and sort them out for safe keeping as though the world was a supermarket. We call plants ‘producers’ and humans ‘consumers,’ but life is not an assembly line packaging entities, it is all about intrinsic worth apart from the system.
