Be Like a Squirrel!

Walt Whitman said it best:

Placid and Self-contained.

I think I could turn and live with squirrels,
They are so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition.
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied,
Not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another,
Nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

--Walt Whitman

How can I be of service?
Everything I need to know I learned from squirrels.....

Love Song to Bucky



I Have a Squirrel Companion...
I call him Little Bucky;
Lays by my side,
In my sleeve hides,
He makes me feel so lucky!

He gives me little kisses,
And on my lap he'll lay...
His coat of fur
Is soft as down;
I love him more than I can say!

His ways are sweet and gentle,
He never whines or worries;
Lives in the now
Not knowing how,
Moves fast, yet never hurries!

He plays with wild abandon,
And rests in blissful solace;
His mind is free,
Oh, could it be...
That he lives in true balance?

So teach me little Bucky,
To see the world through your eyes...
Each moment new,
All good, all true;
Right where I live is Paradise!

I have a squirrel companion,
And on my lap he'll lay.
His love is pure,
His path is sure...
Love loves us more than I can say!
