Today's Quotography challenge is "spirituality" and since it is also World Bird Wednesday, I combined the two to come up with this offering. It seems appropriate as I do feel a connection to the divine when I'm focused on these winged creatures. These Downy Woodpeckers were captured during last week's walk in the park.
As I write this, I hear birds chirping to one another outside my window. The first thing I noticed when I woke in this house for the first time some fourteen years ago was the sound of birds singing. The song they sing is of spring time, new beginnings and hope.
Fourteen years - that's the longest I've ever lived in one place in my entire life.
Cars and people noise were all I heard in the morning for years in the apartments where the boys and I lived. We moved here because the area was getting dangerous - just a mile down the street from the boys' grandparents. It isn't exactly the country life, but the area is somewhat rural.
Rarely are we all under the same roof now my own little birds have flown the nest. It has been good to have both my guys here for the past few days. Adam left just a moment ago to be with his wife who is going to school in Knoxville and will be returning this weekend.
Hump day is my Monday this week as it is back to work for me after a nice four day weekend. The weather was incredible yesterday and today looks good as well. I'm hoping to get back to the park and maybe catch some more birds.
