Wordless Wednesday: Windy Day At The Marsh


(I have no idea why the video uploaded so blurry like this, but it did. This is not what the video looks like on my computer. Oh well, it sure was beautiful to watch a shorebird murmuration.)

    1. Dave-- They are truly amazing to watch. Especially love the little ones whose wings change from dark to light when they change direction. It's awesome in every way.

  5. Beautiful! I can only imagine how it feels to stand in the sun with the wind wrapping around you, watching such a miracle of beauty.
    I'm trying this on Chrome. Fingers crossed....

  6. You do not have to be good.
    You do not have to walk on your knees
    For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
    You only have to let the soft animal of your body
    love what it loves.
    Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
    Meanwhile the world goes on.
    Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
    are moving across the landscapes,
    over the prairies and the deep trees,
    the mountains and the rivers.
    Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
    are heading home again.
    Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
    the world offers itself to your imagination,
    calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting --
    over and over announcing your place
    in the family of things.
