We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

Monkey Boy

Halloween is usually one of my favorite holidays, but this year it got swept to the side by everything that is going on. Luckily Grandma Mary sent Alder a monkey suit. Let me tell you the tale of Monkey Boy.

Monkey Boy woke as the sun was setting, he stuck his handy banana in his pocket and went out into the land of wooden floors to explore.

He went this way and that, never a moment still.

He found rare specimens that needed drumming.

But he would not stop. No there was dancing to be had!

When the calls of the dark dwellers came to the door he might pause.

As the visitors dwindled Monkey Boy returned to his nest high in the umbrella tree.

He climbed up with his banana still in his pocket.

And was done.

Or not...

Nice pictures. The blurry ones remind me of "Bigfoot" photos.
