Friday, DH and I went to one of our favorite spots...our local wild life refuge. This momma bird was pretty put-out because we were getting close to her nest. She kept noisly hopping through the reeds attempting to distract us. Nothing like getting in touch with nature for "getting in touch" with yourself. It is a breath of fresh air...and it offers new changes every season we visit. Right now they have let in some more water and a herd of sheep to help with vegetation. There are fewer species of birds because most have returned to the originally colder climates now that it is warming up. We took folding chairs, snacks (fruit & cheese), binoculars and my camera. There is always something to see and enjoy...putting us back into reality...the now, the present...being alive and in sinc with it all. You really have a sense of connectiveness, being part of the cycle. Refreshing day.
