Feeling the stillness in Stillwater
There is something special about touching another living creature.
Usually I feel too rushed doing the next chore, or working on a work project, to take a moment to feed the birds by hand as I encouraged my children to do.
Recently, feeling a little bit of depressed one day - I took a moment to do this. I felt a thrill as eight of the wild dove touched down on my hand, and felt his dry little scratchy feet. It was like touching another part of yourself, another part of God in another creature. Another part of the Greater Spirit. I felt uplifted.
Taking that moment to feel our world, is probably a source of unhappiness for we often unhappy people of the world.
