Nature Nurtures


When I start to panic and worry, I look to Nature for my calm.
Saturday I ran on the trails with Zippy while a Red-tailed Hawk soared above.

Today, I return to last week’s Starling visit for solace.
As long as there are birds in my life, I can find the courage to carry on.

And because I’ve been reading THE ANNOTATED CHARLOTTE’S WEB:

I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.

  1. Great post, Tracy.

    I saw something uplifting about birds just the other day. It was about how they rebuild EVERY TIME a nest is destroyed, even if there were eggs in it. They start over. They hope anew for the future. They do what needs to be done to have that future. No matter how many times it takes. Yep, birds are great teachers.
