Abseiling geometer caterpillar

Caterpillars who seem to be dancing… they’re all over the forest at the moment. They’re not dancing, though. It’s more like a sort of abseiling.

These caterpillars will be geometer moths one day. These moths lay their eggs high up the tree when winter approached. When these trees start growing leaves again in spring, the caterpillars emerge and start feasting on the young leaves.

As soon as they’ve had enough to eat they lower themselves to the ground dangling from a silk thread. Once on the ground, they weave a cocoon in which they lie low until autumn arrives.

That’s when their beautiful moth selves emerges to find a mate and restart the cycle….

Connection

A wise woman knows she’s connected to every being on earth. She feels it in the marrow of her bones. It’s where she draws her power from.

I’m convinced that the main source of our problems – whether they express themselves in disease, depression or a just a vague sense of discontent – is the disconnectedness that comes with being a part of our society. From buying into the stories we are being told and tell ourselves.

That’s why I’m fine with always being a bit of an outsider. It keeps me sane, able to see through the fiction and in touch with the rest of the earth.

How long has it been since you’ve felt true connection to your fellow creatures? Felt like one of them?

Feel the magic…

Somewhere in Kerry, Ireland…

There are places where it’s impossible not to feel the magic that’s in the earth. Where it’s easy to transcend this plane and travel elsewhere. This is one of these spots.

Sit with me for a while and see what I see.
