This morning I awoke to the sounds of a bird symphony of sorts. When I looked onto the porch it appeared there were hundreds of birds coming to visit our home.

Can you love a place simply because of the birds?

Well, I can… Upon some detective work and with Jon’s help we decided that they must be robins. They stayed all day- flying about, flocking to one tree and then another, and singing- always singing. It was lovely.

Now, it is a quiet Sunday evening and all the birds are asleep or moving on- I will have to wait until tomorrow to find out.

The new year has started out quietly for me. It has been lovely though and I have taken great joy in focusing on the lovely moments in life that take you by surprise. Like a symphony of birds on a cloudly, sunday morning, or kittens that try to hatch avocado trees

The world is full of wonder.
