Gideon’s Challenge

IMG_6676Identity

Someone
the other day
called me
a Dryad
and
I was honored.
I had
no objection
and no argument
to give.

Funny how sometimes people pay attention and you don’t even realize it’s happening until they come out with an observation out of the blue that signals they’ve learned some intricate and core part of who you are without even realizing until that moment that they have.

My connection to the earth is so strong, so essential and so very much a part of who I am that I do not often realize that it is so visible to others.  It might be silly, but it felt sort of good to have that part of myself recognized and so casually… so easily… accepted.
