If you follow my blog, you already know how much I enjoy observing birds and animals in their natural habitat. I find that it's a beautiful way to "be present" in life and it's especially healing when life is challenging. I love watching birds in flight. I'm often reminded of the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull. What a great read. I was 16 when I first fell in love with that book. I think birds really do enjoy flying. I certainly enjoy watching them.
When I go to the beach, it's the birds, as much as the waves that I enjoy watching. As we say goodbye to 2009 and hello to 2010, I leave you with this quote by Henry Elli: "All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on."
Happy New Year!
