We finally have some snow up here, which makes such a difference. When we are in the middle of winter we do have just a tiny bit of light each day, unless it’s cloudy 😉 Snow on the ground makes such a difference by lightening it all up.
It’s also interesting to see that when you are out you all of a sudden see tracks. Tracks from animals, people, cars or bicycles that you may not as easily be able to see otherwise. I find the traces from the wild animals most fascinating, because those animals are most rare to meet. With the snow it’s as if I get more close to them and they become more real, just by their tracks appearing so obvious. But the fact is that they are here during the whole season. Of course they can shift and change their routes, but they are still around. It’s just that their tracks aren’t as obvious to me. I need to look for them in a different way.
It strikes me that it’s a bit like with us humans. We always leave footprints wherever we go, whatever we do. We may not always be aware of it, but we still do. Sometimes they are easy for others to see, sometimes not. But they are still there.
And sometimes we walk our own way, where no-one else have been before, creating new paths for others to follow. Breaking new ground. Or just walking in the footsteps of others before us, simply because we don’t always have the need to break new ground.
Tracks and footprints tell a story if we wish to see and hear it. And there are so many dimensions to it.
I love checking them out when in nature and to try and figure out what animal it is, why has it been right there and where it was heading. Sometimes I walk the animal tracks and connect with the animals that have created the path. Becoming one with them and with Mother Earth. That is a walking meditation for me and opens a flow of creative energy within me that is very helpful and needed in handling the everyday world around me.
Also helping me to walk my talk, which is very important to me. If I just talk and don’t walk that talk – then how can I be trusted?
So I just keep on walking, enjoying it and keep watching those footprints, tracks and paths shown in the snow. 🙂
Wishing you a happy day in love and joy! <3
