It's officially Spring, and I was looking through some photos I've taken over the years. It's reassuring that in spite of all the turmoil that may swirl around us, life indeed does go on. Today, let's celebrate life.
One summer, about seven years ago, I had a pair of potted trees on either side of my door. One day I noticed a little bird sitting on one of the branches. It wasn't long before there were two birds constructing their summer home. As I watched through the window, over the weeks that followed, the incredible miracle of life unfolded before my eyes. First, there was one egg...the next...two...then three...and on day four, there were four perfect, spotted blue eggs.
The little birds carried on despite a busy family coming and going right past their nest. One evening as we were all going out, I glanced in the nest. I will never forget the sight. Fortunately, I had my camera, and without touching the tree, I was able to freeze the moment in time. Over the next week, I recorded the unfolding miracle.
I thought of something as I was writing this post. Most of us, as creative people, have at one time or another felt they did not measure up. Look at it this way: if Michelangelo had witnessed this, even he would have felt upstaged! So, keep on doing what you do and remember that we bear the image of the Master artist. We were born to be creative! Have a lovely day.
Until next time,
