Today my walk was wonderful. After rainy days with temperatures in the low 30’s, it was in the mid 50’s and sunny with just a hint of a breeze. Great walking weather.
While I was walking there were three hawks soaring through the skies. They looked like they were enjoying their flight like I was enjoying my walk. I tried to get some pictures but my phone camera just couldn’t do it. The hawks were too high and fast and the sky too bright. The pictures looked like beautiful skies with little specks of brown. I was bummed! It was such a joy to watch them show their stuff. Beautiful.
But I did get a picture of this pretty girl, I think she was enjoying the day, too.
“Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will.”
Well, that’s it for today.
No more chatter from me this Tuesday.
While I was sitting at my desk the other day I saw the reflection of a Red-tailed Hawk on my computer screen. I turned around to see it sitting right outside my window. It has been a while since I have had a hawk visit me. There was one that often perched on my balcony railing in the morning but not once this summer was I visited.
The hawks are wonderful to watch as they fly and find a thermal current then they just soar, high and far. To see them up close is a great gift. They are rather regal and it does seem they think we humans are a little lower in importance then they are in the scheme of things.
I did not know how much I missed seeing this magnificent creature. These birds are fairly common around here but it is unusual for them to sit on a railing, the roof often, but rarely so close to doors and windows.
I am humbled and thankful that I was blessed with the hawk’s visit.
