Our Time in Eden

We took our son Max to Patagonia-Sonoita Creek Preserve for his first ever hike. What a perfect place for it. We saw a Great Horned Owl in a giant Cottonwood tree, and a birder let us view a Gray Hawk with his powerful birding scope. We also saw several deer (I've seen deer here in 3 out of 3 visits!) and countless other birds. This time we added the short Cienga trail to the end of the loop. The trail proved to be a refreshing conclusion for it smelled strongly of mint. Once again, the preserve blew me away, and I was pleased to share it with my wife, father, mother, and son. It's my birthday tomorrow, but we already celebrated it and SO MUCH MORE at the preserve.

These are days you'll remember.
Never before and never since, I promise, will the whole world be warm as this.
And as you feel it, you'll know it's true that you are blessed and lucky.
It's true that you are touched by something that will grow and bloom in you.

These are days you'll remember.
When May is rushing over you with desire to be part of the miracles you see in every hour.
You'll know it's true that you are blessed and lucky.
It's true that you are touched by something that will grow and bloom in you.

These are days.

These are the days you might fill with laughter until you break.
These days you might feel a shaft of light make its way across your face.
And when you do you'll know how it was meant to be.
See the signs and know their meaning.
It's true, you'll know how it was meant to be.
Hear the signs and know they're speaking to you, to you.
