Ruthie Mae inspired what turned into a beautiful walk and an emotionally moving time for me. We ventured out just before dusk, which is often the time of day I’m drawn to go outside, particularly when I’m in a melancholic mood. I can’t think of anything that could have helped me more than our time together did. It was perfect!
Ruthie saw a daring squirrel perched on a big tree. She looked surprised when it didn’t immediately flee upon her arrival. First, she appeared perplexed. After a short moment, she had a hunter’s gaze that is so much a part of who she is, and which I do love.
There were several interesting sculptures in the park where we walked. My favorite one is of three metal figures in the shape of women, holding their arms toward the sky. They remind me of my two sisters, so I call them, The Three Sisters, but I don’t know the true title.
We came upon a bench formed into the shape of open hands. I was especially inspired by the quote.
The message touched my low spirit, lifting me from melancholia, to an inner place of hope.
“And Never Cease to Keep Your Wait
for Grace Lamp Ready.”
