September Momentts from Little Piney
September was a hot and humid month of natural disasters and human suffering, As September finally passed, we were shocked by a senseless act of violence on the first day of October. In the midst of great human suffering, I am grateful for the peace and comfort that nature provides. When the world presents its most chaotic and cruel face, healing time in nature is more important than ever. I hope you have an outdoor place that nurtures your spirit. In this post, I’m sharing peaceful September moments at Little Piney.
We are always thrilled to see a bobcat at Little Piney. I thought this one was a cougar until corrected by wildlife biologist, Ray Matlack of West Texas A&M, host of PBS series Texas Wild. He wrote “It’s a bobcat, beautiful and lanky, probably a male.” He appeared at 5:50 pm. Robert Trudeau of Texas Parks and Wildlife said that bobcat sightings were up, probably due to disruption by recent flooding.

This was fun to paint–my daughter’s big cat who likes to sit up like a human.
