Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote “In the woods, we return to reason and faith. There I feel that nothing can befall me in life,—no disgrace, no calamity, (leaving me my eyes,) which nature cannot repair.” At First Light presents this beauty and majesty that only nature can bring.

Five mice. One box of rice. You can imagine the adventures these rodents have in pursuit of their prized cereal grain!

They are much quieter than calling birds. Do lock up your Basmati though… And, just what a mouse (or mice) would like is the Buffalo favorite, sponge candy, a crisp chocolate-covered caramelly treat, in ornament form.
