...8.5.12...








"there is only one moment in time
when it is essential to awaken.
that moment is now."
~the Buddha 
this morning.
with coffee.
 the wind chime.
as directed by the wind.
played it's melody.
the sound of a protective parent.
is evident.
i hear this sound often.
as the parents.
are not fond of the cats.
wondering too close to their nest.
this morning.
they are especially loud.
and this is why.
 as i turn around.
i see this top photo.
the baby has left the nest.
there it sat.
very still.
while momma bird continued.
her disapproval of my presence. 
i went back.
to the porch.
to watch from a non-threatening
position.
as the new offspring.
discovers it's surroundings.
"there is only one moment in time
when it is essential to awaken.
that moment is now."
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.
robin.

Hear, hear! So very true (the quote for today)! There is only the present...

LOVE those fuzzy caterpillars on your banner! They don't look real-they look as though a fiber artist made them.

Been scrolling through your summer posts. I took some time off from blog land. Wishing you the best on your new photography en devour. Your soft pictures and calming words are as soothing as ever.
Cheers,
Leah
