I go out meandering in a nearby nature park frequently. It allows me to ponder my thoughts, sort of meditate and gestate over things I've been reading and thinking, and often new insights come to mind triggered by what my canine companion and I encounter in nature.
Sometimes connections are made, or new revelations are revealed. It can also be quite inspirational. This is where much of my poetry comes to me as well.
Today our adventure with a turtle caused me to dwell deeply on aspects of fairy tales and our own journeys in life.
First of all, I would like to introduce this new blog. I have long needed a place to collect thoughts that revolve around my accumulated knowledge of European folklore, myth, and legend, and how it corresponds with an organic spirituality and life in general. I will collect some of my postings from other venues and relocate them here, and then use this one going forward.
