It was about some troublesome creature that was at Green Gulch at the time.  I don't remember if it was flies, fleas, gophers, moles, but, whatever, today I am thinking of it in terms of all that surrounds us.  Here we are, each of us with some agenda or other, and there are others, also, here sharing the same space and learning their own particular lessons.

It is quite a dance, so enjoy your place in it, while also allowing space for others to find their own direction, path, timing, and growth.
