Change What You Can

My goodness, sunrise is not now until 6:38. Time marching on into fall, no matter the warmth of this early morning. The air is heavy, so heavy and quiet, sparse bird sounds here and there, and yes the crickets. So funny how they are in perfect rhythm and a background that goes unnoticed mostly. Cicadas will likely come later, as the sun dawns with heat. It rained–thank goodness!–yesterday evening, and the dampness is fresh, with a thin fog laying over the pasture and yard.

With the Audubon Bird app, I figured out that the ghostly bird call I heard last week was a loon. And now it isn’t calling. Guess it was just passing through. Makes me think how everything in life is just passing through. Sometimes the visit is a long one, but eventually everything does pass on. One thing constant in the world is change. I’m glad some of it is very slow, like the seasons.

Lots of things on tap today, and I give thanks for that. I have to say that I never have in my life been bored. So many things to see and do, and change, if I can. I’m looking at what I can change in order to write more. How can I say no to other things and yes to writing. I did that for years and wrote all day long. But then again, I’m in a new season of my life.

God bless us all…have a good time today!

  1. Morning and early afternoon errands were completed. Upon returning home I heard the sounds of the birds in my tree. I think they were the birds who did the sound track for Alfred Hitchcock’s movie “The Birds.” It was not the sweet sounds that you so beautifully describe each morning.

  2. a loon!!!

    maybe I need that Audubon Bird App….. have you heard the summer tanager? I learned his call a couple years ago… check him out. I hear him or her occasionally, and love the sound. I have tried to mimic his song…haha.

    Outside I go this morning. .. feed the kitty, water the garden, my favorite pastimes.

    Yes, God bless us all.
