I had a dream this morning…the kind that stayed with me all day. I was at a lake, it was a lake up North. The water had a green hue to it and there were a pair of ducks hanging out. I acknowledged that I have been seeing and hearing mallard ducks lately, I even had a pair in my backyard Tuesday morning. I was talking to someone I couldn’t see. I noticed that I was barefoot and I had to restrain myself from putting my feet in the water, the thin layers of ice on the top of the water were the only thing that stopped me. I looked to the left and noticed a large tree with no leaves on the edge of the water. In that tree was a large eagle’s nest, it was partially hidden even without the leaves but I knew what it was. I got super excited when I realized that there were eagles in the nest.
I turned to get to my camera and there was a large wall of earth behind me. I was a little nervous but I put both elbows on the grass and pulled myself up. I could see my camera and when I reached for it I heard a voice say “sometimes it’s okay to just witness the magic.” So I laid in the grass and just watched as one of the eagles flew overhead. Then I woke up.
The barefoot thing has been coming up a lot lately. When I was out taking pictures last Saturday with my neighbor I kept thinking to myself “why did I wear tennis shoes? I wish I could take them off” It was pretty chilly this morning when the dog got stuck outside and I chose not to wear shoes when I went out to get her unstuck. My feet were pretty darn cold when I got back. I guess I am feeling the call to connect to the earth in a big way. Especially now that I am dreaming about it.
We are in the middle of a cold snap at the moment so it will be some time before it’s technically barefoot weather. The little chicks still don’t have all of their feathers so it will definitely be next month before they are outside full time. I am so glad that I found power by coffee pet bedding https://powerbycoffee.com/ I can’t believe how great it helps with the smell!! Of course you know I will figure out how to DIY it, especially since I have a coffee connection.
Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday, it’s been a heck of a week….Zia
