be very still

Friday, April 04, 2014

I'm at work - I am working - but not like I am going to be soon. I have time to rest - I have time to wander - I have time to listen to the rain splatter like a thousand feet on the canvas tent top and to listen to the sounds of nature.
I heard it - the deep - deep whoot of an owl so near the dinning lodge - I must go out and see if I can locate it.

no luck -- however I sat down next to this old huge tree protected from the falling rain and just waited - sitting still hoping to get a sight of the owl... as I sat ever so still like a rock troll statue out of my eye a robin hops from spot to spot on the ground looking for a tasty snack. I make a slight motion - it flutters onto a fallen log and watches me for over five minutes as I watch it... During this time a little grey squirrel scurries about also not paying any attention to my prying eyes.
I must do this again - so much life is missed in my business and rushed life
but now I must return to the job at hand..

Lunch = chili - soup - salad - baked potatoes

    So glad that you have a quieter time right now, to be able to take breaks and just sit. emoticon
We have a little owl family out on the back 40. I always have an easier time seeing them at dawn/dusk.
