Sharp, deep, and a total surprise. It was injured and I was rescuing it from the dog and put it into a tree. Ended up in hospital getting a jag, antibiotics and stitches.
So. I’d just been for a long walk contemplating deeply how the wounded injured people I have tried to save and rescue so very often end up ‘biting’ me, one way or another.
My thoughts went a little further, to pondering the idea that if you give people more than they feel they deserve, they will push it away, unable to receive it.
Then that happens. Nature mirrors our own inner experience.
That’s the drama for this week.
