“What unraveled, Dear, was a new perspective of our world. As I proceeded down the trail, the plants glowed as I came near to them. Some were more brilliant than others, but all gave off some level of light. And that marvelous colony of ferns that we are both so smitten with was spectacular. It was as if an entire community switched on their lights for the outsider passing by. Even as I continued along the trail, the ferns seemed to be the most exuberant. Their response seemed to be inter-relational. As my eyes reached further into the woods, singular ferns would brighten when I looked in their direction.
“And then, a lovely family of deer came out of a heavily wooded area, and what I witnessed was amazing. As the family of three walked through the area, the plants shimmered, lighting the way for them. The plant life was providing light for all who passed by, including a great horned owl that flew high up into that old towering white pine. As she flew upward, the branches sparkled, lighting the way for her until she landed comfortably on a large limb. Then the tree dimmed so that the owl was hidden safely by the darkness. It truly was a marvelous sight to behold. This adventure continued from one location to the next until the morning sun took over responsibility for bringing light to the area.”
