After walking down the boardwalk for a while I wanted to find a bench that I could sit on and just enjoy the woods for a moment. I found a bench and sat on it and just as I was about to write about the things around me there was a spider crawling towards me. It was one of the really long legged spiders with a tiny body. I jumped in fright and continued walking to find another spot to sit on. It may sound a bit too much but I felt like nature didn’t want me there and was shooing me away. As I was walking I stopped by a beautiful patch of Trout lilies, the sun was peek-a-booing through the tree leaves and it was hitting the patch like a spotlight. The lilies were yellowish orange in color and they looked like jewels under the sunlight. I heard something move beneath the patches so I squatted down to see what it was. There were a bunch of brown chipmunks with light brown strips that were gnawing on some sort of nuts. I was looking straight at one of the chipmunks. For a brief moment the chipmunk looked right back at me, it looked stunned but it didn’t move until it realized that I was an intruder. It scurried away right after and I felt uninvited yet again. I like to think that humans are a part of nature too but small moments like the ones I had that day at the woods makes me question if that is really true anymore.
