On our drive home from Alberta, through the mountains, we enjoyed all the signs of fall that we were seeing, the snow on the mountain tops, the changing leaves. The sun shone brilliantly giving a glow to all around us.
In the midst of all of this beautiful scenery, we came across cars slowing and stopping at the side o the road – and of course looked to see what everybody was watching.
It was a magnificent sight, and we were close enough to hear the sounds of the antlers clacking.
Apparently a traditional male ritual, we felt honored to be able to witness the show. We’ve no idea who won of course, but it was a competition worthy of both.
It got me thinking of the ways that we humans sometimes ‘lock horns’ to see who’s the boss – thankfully we don’t have to actually wrestle out in public for all the world to see. But hopefully when we’re in such a contest, we can take time to ‘count to ten’ and clear our minds so we can see the issues clearly.
Happy sighting! Blessings, Peg
