Happy spirit - V MontinolaVeronica gets to travel quite a bit and often sends us photographs of nature spirits she encountered on the way. On a trip to Estes Park, Veronica encountered this happy tree spirit (to the left).

On a recent trip to Malaysia, Veronica and her daughter visited the famous limestone Batu Caves.

Limestone, being soft, is particularly maleable to shaping by water and wind. It can also serve  as a conduit or portal between worlds, and is found in many areas that experience a high incidence of spirit contact – including at Estes Park.

To the right are some spirits who live at the entrance to the Bat Caves (I darkened the sunlight coming into the cave, so you can more clearly see the images)
