Trickster

Wiley Coyote.  Here is one of the coyotes that I mentioned yesterday that had been feasting on the geese and their new brood of chicks.  No abundance of feed for her today.

I think I can learn a lot from this coyote and almost all of Natures family members.  They live in the moment.  Back in the Spring the coyote didn't think to herself, I need to stockpile some of these geese for winter feed.   She ate what she needed when the opportunity was presented and that was enough.  Tomorrow will take care of tomorrow.  I read recently that depression is regret of the past and anxiety the fear of the future, and I am guessing this coyote experiences neither of those emotions.

  1. The 'need for newness' is what so many use to try to fill that emotional void. (Great quote, by the way.) No wonder Amazon does such a great business.

    1. I believe you mentioned the book 'The Language of Trees' so I put on my list and picked up at library and started reading last night. That line I quoted really made an impression on me so I wrote it down to keep for reference.
