Spritely Mischief & Magick


There’s been a rainbow sprite sighting on the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT). Keep your eyes open for mischief and magick in the High Sierra. You never know who or what you might see.

And what you might get yourself into and discover by walking with a light foot and heart through it all….and life.

It’s always a gift to get outside and explore what nature is up to each day. So much incredible discoveries, expansive views, tiny details, and portal potency.

Especially heart warming is getting to see our tree friend whom we helped and nurtured all last winter during the craziest snow fall here in Tahoe. You might remember my posts on him last winter. The huge drifts of snow would come down the mountain on him and had him bent over, highest limbs touching the ground. We’d dig him out every time we passed and give him love. So wonderful seeing him strong and having grown several feet already this year! He’s nearly straight and looks like he’s going to be just fine.

Other trees end up getting uprooted. What was also sweet is that right behind him a new baby tree is growing. I know he’ll take good care of her. The two photos of us each by the tree show how big he’s gotten. When it was my turn to get my photo with him I started walking toward him and tripped on a bush or root buried in the snow. We felt he wanted me there from that perspective, but also wanted to have a little fun with me. So we took the photo of me after my fall looking up at his beauty. That photo is above.

And below is the world of wonder as seen through a sprite’s eyes.

At the end of the day, it’s not how much you have or have accomplished that matters, but how much more your heart opened. Nature helps mine expand and deepen daily more than I thought possible. If you feel your heart tight like a bud or wilted and hurting in some way, let nature in. She has a way of touching the hardest to reach places and bringing a warm smile where you thought you never could feel again.
