I haven’t posted in a while because there are multiple big movements going on in my life at once right now. I trust things will slow down enough for some more regular posts here soon. The photos below are from yesterday evening. There is a drought here in Wisconsin, like lots of other parts of the United States right now. One thing that is doing well in this weather is the hen and chicks. It has sent up a long shoot with flowers at the end. Last night I noticed a tiny feather on the flowers. The feather is less than an inch long and has a sort of warm tan and bluish hue to it. Makes me think of a hummingbird, but wrong colors for a ruby-throated hummer. Seeing feathers (and hearing bird songs) is always a reminder to me of angels and fairies. It is a reminder to take things and myself lightly, to rise above all the storms, to remember joy and hope and to smile at the ordinary miracle of life. Thank you tiny feather!
