Hermit of Sabino Canyon
The Hermit of Sabino Canyon is a Watcher – a tree spirit who observes hikers crossing a bridge, from under his shaded home at the base of a desert tree. The hermit told me he was very happy to live peacefully alone, and did not want any special attention paid to him.
I very much enjoyed conversing with this hermit spirit – I felt a great affinity for his solitary journey to acquire knowledge. I found the spirits of the void who live above his head of interest – they are of the depths the hermit has been exploring. I also found it interesting that as part of his personal discipline he was studying various of the passer-bys on the Sabino Canyon, Arizona road that borders his home.
