Mossy Lassie

I love walking with my darling Sissy through the forests where we played as children.  I remember when I happened to spy this happy collie peeking from the crags of a lichen-covered stump.  She looked a bit like Lassie to me.

You had to stand just so to see her.  Here is the cropped version of  Lassie as I first saw her.

Above you see the original photograph in full. If you look closely, I think there's a craggy brown face there, too.  Because I loved Lassie so much as a child, I thought it especially cool to find my Mossy Lassie in the magical forests of my childhood..

I totally relate to this experience. I see so many images in the forest and the clouds. All one needs to do is look with an open and imaginative mind. Thanks for sharing.

My kids cried when I read Lassie to them, at the part where he fell down. They thought he was dead. They were so relieved when he got back up again!
