Desperation can at times be dangerous.
He peeped at me from the top of a high tree, so as to say, Watch this!
A happy Friday to all and there is a laugh at the end picture.
This guy was not wearing a safety helmet, no padded jacket and no safety rope. He was at a frightening height in the tree and at risk of a sudden strong gust of wind, but more importantly flying hawks, falcons or eagles could pluck him out of the top branches.
I couldn't shout at him to come down, as English is not his first language and the people would think I am off my rocker for shouting at a tree :)
He was really out to prove his skill up high at the top and I was praying that he wouldn't fall.
Now how is this for a reach to look for a non existent nut, as it is winter here and that tree had no nuts, but nobody told him.
Finally he peeped at me again seeking applause, but I was not in a mood to clap and dance whilst whistling loudly.
The he scaled down the tree at speed and came to ask for a reward :)
We can certainly get up to all kinds of things when we are desperate and this squirrel was the epitome to reflect this reality to me.
Life is not easy and we have all been there. When desperation sets in rationallity flies out of the window and we often burn our fingers.
So the lesson that this squirrel gave me was to never act when one is desperate, as there is always a logical solution.
Kindness to the self and others are always a winner, especially when one has the blues.
Think about it.
And That's All Friends.
