Three Mules

Three Mules - Photo from

I was driving out of a parking lot in Fallbrook today and there was a man and three pack mules walking along the side of the road. They stopped in a vacant lot beside the library to rest. I went up to him to talk, but he seemed to want his privacy so I moved on, but I was
deeply touched as I watched them walking along the road. On one of the packs there was a web address: Here's the text from the one-page site:

To answer the most asked questions: Who are we? Where are we from? And where are we going? We are mules. We are from the outside. We live outside all day , every day. Where are we going? Nowhere, we're here- the outside, the web of life- the beautiful earth, a place like no other. We have come to this place-a place of golden sparkling light, a place for anybody and everybody. Give your faith, hope and energy to this place at which time you connect to it and receive the magic and endless possibility of infinity. As you walk in this place with these mules you spread the awareness that this beautiful earth like no other can only be protected by the way we live one day at a time.

Seeing this fellow walking along a busy road with three mules following behind, something touched me deeply. The feeling was one of peace and reverence. I was deeply moved. Others have seen him walking throughout Arizona and California. Perhaps he blesses everyone he passes....
