My brightest light allows me to see, without disturbing, the tiny details of life around me – deep into the grass, high in the trees, and miles from where I stand. My brightest light allows me to see lives that are otherwise hidden from view, and I’m reminded of my place among them. We are animals and organisms, in all our complexity, our triumphs and tragedies, sharing this planet today.
Thank you Siobhan! There is a beautiful poem called “What The Dog Perhaps Hears” by Lisel Mueller. Your experience of hearing what is unheard made me think of it. There is so much of life that we don’t perceive, yet we are a part of it. I like to remind myself of that regularly.
