House Finch

This is the first year we've had house finch move into the neighborhood.

He's got a lovely lady and they've got a cutie of a babe who calls and begs all day.

I love them.

My meditation is simple. It doesn't require any complex practices. It is signing. It is dancing. It is sitting silently. ~Osho

Finch

This morning as I sat and the cardinals sang

two males side by side

my mind began to drift to this flock and what I can learn from it.  

I came in and looked up the wisdom of the finch...

'They are generally cheerful, musical, and social birds, and delightful to both watch and listen to.  These birds are signals of a high level of energy coming into your life, and bring the hope of excitement and joy.' (Healing Wisdom of Birds)

That sounds about where my own energy is at these days

creating, manifesting, and dreaming.

Flock II

The snow coming down is beautiful.

It is painfully unfair that it is not sticking.

The true southerner that runs in my blood is thankful I made the trip to the grocery store...

Flock

I slid into the flock of birds today up close to watch them... I read there can be up to five hundred in a flock.  I don't think the flock passing through right now has five hundred but, it easily has 250.  There are pine siskins, goldfinch, red house finch, nuthatch, and juncos.  The sound is incredible as they land among the trees and begin their decent to the ground... The swoosh when the hawk spooks them and the flee into the trees...
