Lately, I've been doing a lot of walking. One never knows what they are going to find while exploring the Vancouver Island. It's a wondrous place full of mystery and surprises and love and greenery. Once you start adventuring, curiosity is tickled, and you search for the unexpected, unknown and unbelievable. Sometimes you run across mushrooms that are meant to shelter gnomes, or flowers worthy of a pixie's dust.
Most of the time you find little reminders that amazing people exist all around you. Sure, you might not know them, but they are brushing shoulders with you. It's noticeable in the messages they leave behind. A carving on a bench, a drawing on the ground, a knitted heart hanging from the limb of a tree. And the notes. They are everywhere. It's almost as though once you really start looking you are finally able to see.
The truth is simple. You are never alone here. You matter.
A message from the Earth and the people who live here.
