Wordless Wednesday: Mother's Eyes

These are the roots of a pine tree that is no more. These are the bears at Huntington Park in Redding. Their pals the wolves are in the post below. I love the wolves for making me look up and think of the mysterious interaction between animals and the heavens; I love the bears for the intense, piercing way they take in what is right here.
