U.S. Fish and Wildlife Photo
U.S. Fish and Wildlife PhotoI've attempted but missed photo's of the comings and goings. I so wish I could photo the going's on in the nest, but will have to be satisfied with one of the adults feeding at our bird feeder.

It's been a full week for me. Connecting with friends, art groups, family. I won an award for a painting! And yesterday I had the thrill of meeting NY artist/author Seth Apter (so charming) and 5 other Seattle area artists in his new book at the book signing. Yesterday one of the attendees was speaking about the effect of a few words of a teacher on a student.
So I remembered a couple of personal instances where someone shared some words with me that made a difference, "stuck". And I wonder how much we all really hear in all the symphony of life that goes on around us. I can't help but think it could be a few words from anyone at a certain moment when we really take it in and hear it. Words and images are so important, conveying meanings and layers of meanings. It's as important to notice what we are sending out to the symphony, as it is to stop and listen to what is coming our way.
Meanwhile, I'm enjoying the little singing chorus of peeps, the new energy, spring, life, the growing of wings for flying on the tiny flickers, my attic babies.
