Remembering the Blessing

I enjoyed this tale because I can recall my one and only time I too witnessed the awe in watching a porcupine climbing down a tree. First confused by what it was then surprised by the size (they're larger than I ever expected) and that I actually am seeing one with my own eyes, I felt so honored. I mean, how many people do you know who can say they have seen one? Deer, racoons, skunks, opossum, snakes, frogs, salamanders, praying mantis - all part of the same habitat and readily seen but few were able to admit to seeing a porcupine. Thank you David for taking the time to document and share this experience. I realized once again how very fortunate I am.

Fantastic!

I'll say it again...I love the way David Louis tells his stories. So refreshing and real...and very moving too!
One of the best series I've heard in a long time.
