Encountering Another Being

We had the beautiful experience of being within 5 feet of three deer at the edge of the cliffs within Cape Disappointment State Park yesterday. We were able to be with these gentle, trusting beings for as long as we wished, enjoying their quiet foraging intermixed with them looking deeply at us. I‎t was a moment we will not soon forget. May we all be able to slow down and quiet ourselves in order to just be, enjoying the beauty of being alive.
