Thanks, @jenniferl, and you’ve been having quite the run of great comments and questions on #yatu! I also love listening to the rain falling on the forest floor from the branches of high trees. And smelling the lavender with the bumblebees buzzing through it.

Your response made me think of this Shel Silverstein poem, from Where the Sidewalk Ends:

Once I spoke the language of the flowers,
Once I understood each word the caterpillar said,
Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings,
And share a converation with the housefly
in my bed.
Once I heard and answered all the questions
of the crickets,
And joined the crying of each falling, dying
flake of snow,
Once I spoke the language of the flowers….
How did it go?
How did it go?

Thanks for inviting us into that magic place!
