You can sense it in the air, you can see it amongst God’s critters, explosion of energy as the male’s of each species proudly strut their stuff! Anything to attract the female and fulfill the call.
“In a spirit of hope and new beginnings, we linked arms like a couple of kids. Pushing aside sad thoughts, we strode off into our future.” ― A.B. Shepherd, Lifeboat
New beginnings morph into focused attention to locale and foraging of building materials. Nature’s call to preservation.
You can observe this and sometimes be part of the process unknowingly, like when I brought my Mom to Butterfly World in Pompano Beach, Florida. We recently lost my dad and we wanted to celebrate my mom’s birthday in a different way, especially her first without dad. While strolling through one of the aviary’s a few birds landed in her hair and actually “borrowed” a few strands!! It was a suddenly with no outward warning. I barely caught it with my camera and it is a cherished moment for the whole family now!
If you look up you may spy a soaring raptor!
Are you ready to start a new chapter in your life? All you have to do is choose to exit the highway, the normal routine, maybe take a different route home? This is what I did with my very first picture of this blog and now the photo has been chosen for an add for the area!
All because I did indeed take a different route home and shared the experience with friends on Facebook. And do you know someone wrote they had their mom, an invalid, who would LOVE to see something like that from a car window! I was able to share other places of interest with her and now her Mom can experience the JOY TOO!
YES, this is what new chapters are all about, capturing special encounters, the kind that make one smile!! Went to a local wetland and LOOK what I saw! A bird called “Cormorant”; it has a curved beak and dives in the water for fish like the Anhinga. He found this local parrot interesting along with my grandchild and a wheel chair bound visitor.
Won’t you start sharing your adventures with the world? And just maybe your chapter may spark another into a whole new universe of thought, of being….LIVING!
