I just sat.. and waited.  After a moment the earth got quiet, and then I heard each bird and cricket.. then I heard the purr of the dragonfly and was surrounded by butterflies.. It was a whirl-wind of nature! I felt like Pocahontas!  I realized it was there all along, I was simply in too big of a hurry to notice! These photos were taken today as I collected rocks by the river.
