Fort Worth, TX
Above is my favorite tree at Rensing. I gave her a visit today and after saying hello, turned around and headed back the way I came. A little further down the trail I felt pulled to explore the little nook below. A shiny glint of something caught my eye (found out later it was the mineral mica), I crouched down by the water's edge to get a closer look and a wonderful thing happened...
I had one of those rare moments in adulthood when you find yourself doing something you did as a kid, like being hunkered over a stream looking at rocks, and you're getting dirty and it starts to rain but you don't care because you're lost in curiosity. You are connected to that long-since-used child brain that runs on wonder. It is such an important thing to be reminded of. -Layla Luna
