Northern Flicker brings a moment of serenity.
I’ve decided to start Foto Fridays again. My idea is to end the workweek on a high note with beautiful photos (I hope) and sometimes provocative photos. These photos will most likely come from my extensive photo library, but my desire it to post photos from the current week. We’ll see how it goes. Please join me on this weekly journey.
The Meditative Rewards of Watching Birds
Let’s begin with this photo of a Northern Flicker. My friends, Mary Harrell and Susan Taylor, gave me a bird feeder as few months ago. This is truly a gift that keeps on giving. I have gotten more pleasure sitting at my window and watching birds of many varieties come by to eat throughout the day. I never thought this could bring so much calm and serenity. It’s good to have these breaks from the stresses of daily life, especially now with the constant need for diligence to stay aware and remain focused on the political turbulence in our country and the world. No matter how much you understand the need to stand for what you believe, you must remember to take care of yourself. Take the time to take a breather and look at the natural wonders around you. It’s rejuvenating.
