Why I Love The Earth

Yesterday one of my favorite walking companions and I took the path on the left to the river on the right. The day was beautiful with a slight chill in the air and sunny skies. When I take Neyland to the river, although he is old per human standards, he becomes young again. He gets his paws wet in the creek and acts like a young dog. He sticks his nose in every hole in the ground along the path and finds treasures unknown to me. A leaf falling to the rock along the river startles him. We find empty mussel shells and a feather from a blue heron. It was a good day despite finding this plastic bottle nestled by the creekside.
