Stillwater Diary, May 21, 2019 This photo freaked me out! If you look carefully, you can see what appears to be a giant goldfinch trudging up from the creek.

Meditating is good for me, right? And I’m fortunate to have beautiful spaces where I can sit and be one with the universe. Plus I have a very good dog to protect me. Perfect… sometimes.
