A butcher bird came for a visit. She landed and stayed for a loooong while... singing here whole her repertoire of sounds and songs.
i've listened... watched... and was moved by her gifts.
i tried to hear her message... what was she trying to tell me... Was it "listen..." ? or "stay still... do nothing... and embrace the present" ...
i did. i listend. i embraced the present.
The present moment is all we have anyway. We only feed in the illusion that there's more than it... The gift is the present. The present is the gift.
