The Morning Chatter: Rudy & Chipmunk

The Morning Chatter

Rudy & Chipmunk

There is always something or someone catching Rudy's attention each morning. Always so much activity as the world wakes up and begins a new day. Rudy keeps watch over his kingdom and gets the "morning chatter". The Morning Chatter can be the news of the day. Each of the animals as well as insects and other begins bring news from far and wide as well as the local gossip. You never know who will show up and what they might have to say. 

This morning a chipmunk happily fills his cheeks with sunflower seeds as Rudy watches. 

What news to you receive when you connect with them? So much fun....

The Morning Chatter: Slug & Ant

The Morning Chatter

The Slug & the Ant

I think back on all the times that I felt the need to "get rid of" the slugs in the garden. Why? What did they do to me? Ok... they would eat the veggies that I planted and other things but did they really do that much harm? Did they deserve the various ways that I tried to "get rid" of them? NO! 

In this moment I happened to be walking toward something totally unrelated to a slug when I looked down and saw this one slowly but very steadily moving across my path heading somewhere. Something "told" me to get my iPhone out and record a video. I did. In the moment I connected with the slug. What a sweet soul. Maybe you might join me for a moment and watch this video and feel the slug. Feel what it is experiencing in just BEING and living. I love the antennae and its mouth as the body just seems to float on the hard surface. 

Then there is the ant that appears in the top left corner at first. I did not notice the ant until I first viewed this video. Can you "hear" or feel their communication as they notice each other. The ant is very quick and seems curious about the slug. Oh there is a very quick back and forth between them as they meet and then go their separate ways. 

I hope you enjoy this very brief moment with a slug and ant and maybe your will look at them through different eyes. I know I did.
