Inktober Day 14 – Tick

Did you know the opossum is our little vacuum cleaners in nature? They can eat 10k-12k ticks in a month. Be kind to these gentle creatures.

This little fella was placed in rehab when he fell off his mama’s back. Opossums do not go searching for their young so when they fall off, they are on their own.


A couple of places I love who rehab opossums:
IN – Humane Indiana Wildlife
OK – Wild Heart Ranch

The Golden Ratio

Do you notice the Golden Ratio in everyday things? Periodically I receive a pleasant surprise when I am not looking for it.

And then other times… not so pleasant. This little curled up opossum┬álanded in my garage trash can this past week.

We found a happy home for him in the woods, but I couldn’t help but notice nature’s perfection, even if it was not as perfect or cute as my cat. (Ok, so I am biased.)

This has inspired me to dive into a book I have been wanting to read for some time now. Now I get to practice using the Golden Ratio in my creative endeavors.
