In the autumn I usually fill up my pockets with acorns. I am often pleasantly surprised to discover acorns lurking in the pockets of old dog walking jackets many years later. Acorns literally last just short of forever: I have some in pristine condition that are at least ten years old. I marvel at the symmetry of these nuts- scientists and atheists of course will laugh and call me simple. Their loss! To me, God is in nature and here's the proof.
