Day of Rest: Grasshopper on Goldenrod

Saw this little guy sitting on goldenrod yesterday. In shamanic traditions, the grasshopper represents leaping forward, and following your inner voice. The main qualities associated with this goldenrod are: KNOW THYSELF & staying connected to a sense of higher purpose. A good reminder for us all.
Of course I don't see grasshoppers without thinking of John Morgan, author of Grasshopper Notes. My favourite quotes this week:
"Debating is a strategy taught to win a war; communication is a framework to find peace."
"There is always a benefit to watering down your thoughts and one of the best ways to do it is to give undiluted attention."
