Our Joseph Beuys Sculpture Park Firesoul, Sandra Abbott, would like to share one of her favorite stories of the Beuys Park in celebration of summer. She encourages you to look for the little instances of peace and serenity in nature as it is blooming.
“ One evening, I stopped by the park at dusk to check in on a dance rehearsal for a performance that the Beuys park was hosting.
As the sun dimmed, I realized I wasn't the only one watching.
A beautiful red fox had trotted into the park and positioned herself up against one of the smaller stones. Curiously, she leaned back on one elbow in the laziest repose. I was stunned by her human-like attitude and what seemed like genuine interest in the dancers' performance! It was a remarkable and funny thing to see — this gorgeous animal interacting with us at a distance, yet thoroughly engaged.
Asking the dancers if they'd noticed her, they nonchalantly replied, "Oh, yeah. She's been one of regulars at rehearsals this week."
One never knows what kinds of human and nature connections one will make in a Sacred Place!”
In nature, we find connection in the little moments. We encourage you to reconnect with nature, with yourself, and with the things that make you happy this summer!
