FROM A GRASSHOPPER’S MIND

.huge-grasshopper-in-palo

A grasshopper, when observed, flits from one space to another, not traveling very far from each landing.

A grasshopper’s mind does not seem to run far and wide from my perspective, but from his or her perspective it is everything.

This critter is living wholly in the moment, knowing only what it sees, hears, and what it can eat in its surroundings.

The relatives of the grasshopper family, the crickets, join in the space and sing way into the night. Their party is an open invitation

I know because I have a grasshopper and a cricket in the down stairs living room. It is totally quiet, until we walk within range, and then the cricket sings and the grasshopper explores.

Shall we learn from the grasshoppers and the crickets? Live in a small space, look only to live within means, explore, invite the relatives, party all night, and rock to the rhythm of the universe

    Wonderful post–You could have been upset that you have a cricket and a grasshopper in your house. Instead you allowed the experience to teach you a few lessons about how to live a good life.
