"I began to reflect on Nature's eagerness to sow life everywhere...
That immense, overwhelming, relentless, burning ardency of Nature for the stir of life."
—Henry Beston, The Outermost House
It was fun watching this little Douglas squirrel scamper up and down an old cedar stump. He kept going back to get another helping of goodies. He needed to fill up again after a long, cold and snowy winter.
Replenishing works wonders, whether it's good food or something for the spirit. I love to read, and sometimes pick up a book when I'm "supposed" to be working on my own book. I tamp down the guilt! It's a great way to get the "stir of life" going again for my writing.
This tiny squirrel has the right idea—to fill up again with good things for spring.
