Yesterday we went to Mariposa Grove to see the giant sequoias. It was a perfect day ... unseasonably cool and since it's only 30 minutes from our house, we were able to get there before the crowds. The big trees are always awe inspiring and the wildflowers were in full profusion but what really caught my eye were these caterpillars/worms emerging from their silken web. I'm not sure what they are ... in some ways kind of gross and in other ways incredible in their abundance and wriggling life force.
It reminds me that, seen and unseen, life pulses around and through us and makes me wonder what is there deep within me that is squirming toward life?
