I know what you mean when you say "This is one of the most enjoyable endeavors I've ever undertaken.". When I am on my property I feel a real sense of peace and harmony! I know it sounds crazy but I get the feeling the land appreciates that I want to be a good tenant and welcomes me. I feel like my resident creatures want to live in harmony with me as well. I've even accidentally stepped on an ant hill and the ants crawled over my feet but didn't bite me...I was astonished! I've had large wasps set up a nest practically above my head where I sit on the porch (a small cabin I set up) and I have never been stung! I believe that we put out a "vibe" that tells animals if we are a threat or not. How else can you explain it? I had a visitor step on an ant pile as well and they got stung all over! I don't care if it's all in my head or not but I choose to believe it and it brings me joy. The time I spend on my land is the happiest time I have. I too find this to be the most enjoyable endeavor I've ever undertaken!
