You make the life of a ground squirrel sound positively delightful. Also the life of a ground squirrel watcher. If there were some ground squirrels around here, that's exactly how I'd spend my afternoon.

What a lovely post, Kathy. It makes me want to add to "run through the grass, nibble on the flowers, feel the dirt under our feet, the wind in our fur" another suggestion: "read Kathy's Cabin Journal"!

Your post further reminds me of the great philosophical/scientific debate about the nature of consciousness. One of the preeminent academic articles in this field is called "What Is It Like to Be a Bat?" (Thomas Nagel, 1974).


I always wanted to be wild 👍. I lived in the woods and spent time in the wilderness but it is not easy to be wild for a human but these little guys make it look easy cause it probably is for them so adapted. Really a lovely article❣️ Such cute pictures and fun to imagine there life and what they observe when they sit and stare at us.
