The Reminder

As my sitting came to a close this morning, the birds began to sing.  A pleasant reminder that life goes on, as my sleep and my sitting had been clouded by the news of the loss of a friend.  Combined with the collective sense of loss in Japan right now, the feelings can settle in and overwhelm.  But I am more than my feelings.  The birds continue to serenade me. Where would I be without their song, calling me back to life?  May we all sing our song as beautifully and fully as the birds.

  1. funny - the birds and their singing have come up a lot lately. I notice that is what most calms me. Doesn't it make you wonder if they are singing songs intended to calm us? Or maybe they are just always in celebration and praise of life and their song helps us remember, resonantly.
