Ok, ok... we have a little bit of a thing for Pikas right now. But can you blame us? The first time I saw a Pika I think that I squeaked with an even higher-pitched squeak than the Pika itself. I've been fortunate enough to see many Pikas in alpine environments - and it always feels like such a gift to witness one scurrying around. The next time you see any animal outside, take the time to simply watch it. Animals can teach us so much about how to live - the Pika isn't worried about the future or thinking about the past... it just IS. Animals remind us how to slow down and just BE. May we all be as cute, resilient, and adventurous as the Pika and may we live in the moment and squeak with 1/16th of the exuberance.
