Bird Brain

John Lennon was murdered in early December decades ago.  I remember the night and where I was when I heard the news.  The world shook.  Tonight, Lennon and his song: "All You Need is Love" were very much on my mind. 

I have read the bible many times in my life, and among my favorite quotes embedded in the recesses of my youth from Corinthians: "“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

And then I remembered this by Norman Maclean from his book, A River Runs Through It:  “At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear.  It is those we live with and love and should know who elude us.  You can love completely without complete understanding."

Love is our greatest gift.

One Hand Clapping

Some of you may have wondered what happened to my posting over the last weeks.  I was lured back on Facebook briefly, but once again have divorced this form of social networking from my life.  In a matter of only a few hours after closing my FB account, I was out on the shores and in the woods again taking yet more photos.  Purple Sandpipers and Harlequin Ducks are back at Port George for the winter and it was a beautiful morning to catch the golden light as I drove back roads along the lower slopes of the North Mountain.
