Story 20: On Balance
Yesterday, weeks after that first day of the deer hunt, on a snow covered path along a line of now bare trees, I saw a large Barred owl, perched high, still, waiting, watching for its small furry prey.

Meditation 11: Night Sky
We seem to seldom give ourselves the opportunity to experience our minds without the noise and clutter of our busy lives.

Mindful meditation is a practice to begin to notice and better understand and experience the moments of our lives, the sights, sounds, sensations and thoughts.
