In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.

When I was a small child, I wanted to fly like a bird. Taking branches of leaves, I would run as fast as I could and flap my arms like crazy. For a while, I actually believed I was flying. Thus was the faith of a child.

Now, sadly, I don’t run and pretend to fly anymore. I just watch my feathered companions from behind a camera lens.

As J.M.Barrie once wrote, “The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.”
J.M. Barrie, The Little White Bird

"Table for one!"

“Table for one!”

It’s time to dust off my wings, shake out my faith, and give it another go.

Blessed be :)

Wondering, searching, and wandering, I'm a single mother with a desire to get it right in my lifetime. The flow of the river feeds my inner goddess and fuels my soul. Blessed be. :}
