A Little Bit More

Yesterday was asked if I wanted to leave work early. Brought my heart fully charged with exactly this thought.  A finance minded co-worker replied; “You are going to lose @#$ overtime pay!” my response; “It’s worth every dime”

There was a cool breeze and the sun casting rich reflective beams on our Florida Wetlands. In the shade found the cast almost magical, truly one can’t purchase these imprints which refresh a memory so personal.

It’s difficult to explain then again, no one is asking, they just think you’re peculiar as your desire and goals aren’t quite the same. Walking into the entrance, right where a bobcat appeared one day, flew this dove. She hovered and landed directly in front of me, so close almost couldn’t focus my 400 mm lens.  Backed up as far as possible and snapped, oh she was profoundly adorable!

Continued on the path when I heard stomps and clicks. There was this little girl yelling to her family each new animal she saw. Her mother shared how their daughter was compiling a report on the “Night Heron” and they were hoping to get a picture for her project due next month.

It was a joy to share, to witness the excitement and families enjoying the sights. Was overcome with emotion and thankfulness as nature was doing its best pleasing the humans present.  Even Mr Crookedjaw ascended from the depths and looked our way.

Sunset was spent with my favorite bird the Great Blue Heron. Such concentration, standing without blinking or moving, breathed in his presence and encountered a question;

“Are you willing to dive into the watery depths of your own feelings and discover the role of your spiritual essence?” 

Yes we can be still and listen, however are we honest enough to answer? Sometimes we are trapped by an unseen web, fears of inadequacy and forget the realm of what is meant to be, yes our very own heart beguiles us.

Take flight my child, those wings were for a time as this be not conformed to the circumstances, rather rise to the promise and leave your past behind”

If you think about it, formed in a human womb we emerge naked and helpless.  Truly it’s a miracle we even made it thus far! So why are we here?! Well, to get people to move out of our space of course!

Or maybe it’s for a little bit more . . .

    There are MANY things worth WAY more than money…Money will not fill your tummy, Money will not hug you back and say,’I love you’ … money will not love you, ever. Money is a tool. I love money but money does not love me. Thee worst lover I have ever met. Money does not cuddle up and give a human hug, that human-hug alone is price-less… Comments anyone?
