Walking Prayer Pose
Wandering along the mountain trail. My companion, a young autistic man. Slow and steady pace. Perfect for paying heed to our lush surroundings. Absorbing the breathtaking view. Sampling the blackberries. The expression on his face indicating they were still a little on the sour side. Requiring a few more of these sunny days in order to fully ripen. Observing two paragliders descending overhead. A blue heron settling on a cedar bough nearby. My hands coming together in prayer before me as we continue on our way. Thankful for the gift of such a magnificent morning.
