While I am more of an inside sort of person, my sister Rose-Red loves to run about the fields, pick flowers, and catch butterflies. When we go into the woods together to gather berries, no harm ever comes to us. The little hare eats the cabbage from our hands and the deer grazes beside us while the birds on the branches above us sing their sweetest songs. Inside and outside, the world is full of friends.
