In my latest encounter with the rattlesnake, I had the luxury of time and so I decided to observe it. It was interesting to see how my movements controlled its rattle; made me feel more certain that we are connected. Interesting also how the rattle controls my movements. I mean in the desert, I freeze when I hear a rattle. Back in March I wrote an essay called The Earth Is My Witness.
The snake mirrors to me my state of being. I love it.
