One Minute Meditation: Spring Rains Fill Stream

Have you been too busy to get outside and see what’s going on? Do you need a minute just to relax and do nothing? I thought I would do some one minute meditations, starting today, with this video I made recently in my backyard here in western North Carolina. Come join me for a short walk!

As you watch, imagine yourself walking along a small stream in the forest. It is early spring, with just a few ephemerals poking out of the ground. The sky is cloud-filled, the temperature cool. All you can hear as you move along is the sound of falling water. It relaxes you, makes you feel calm and unhurried.

New Meaning for the word Redneck

I have had a suction-cup hummingbird feeder on my office window for some time now but two weeks ago, the ants discovered it, even though it is on the second floor. The hummingbirds are not so fond of floating ants in their nectar so I bought this FABULOUS new feeder (which I highly recommend,) that includes an ant moat. Thus, my ant problem is solved! Check out this hummingbird moment, caught on film. What a spectacular gorget!! (That’s the red neck. When the sun hits it just right, look out!)

Special thanks to Bill for this video suggestion!

Did you know that hummingbirds have the fastest metabolism of any animal on Earth? Or that they are the smallest bird, with the smallest eggs? To read more about hummingbirds, click HERE.
