This Downy Woodpecker is a regular visitor to my feeders.
Thank you to all of my visitors and especially the newer visitors and followers.
I will very rarely write about COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, events, personalities, which revolve around what is happening in the first half of 2020. There are many, many sources for news (and so-called news) about this terrible affliction; sources for facts (which may or may not be facts); for places to find opinions, informed and otherwise.
This is a place for a little respite, a little calm, perhaps a little tranquillity in the midst of all that is going on. It seems to me that many of us, most of us, perhaps almost all of us need a little respite, a little calm, a little tranquillity, a little pleasure, from all of the upheaval in our lives. I need such a place.
This is and will continue to be that kind of place.
It seems that Everyone Has An Opinion about current affairs and how they are being handled, mishandled, what have you.
In this concerning, confusing time, life goes on. I will continue to record and share pieces, fragments, of the world around me. My continued intent is to create a calm and reflective place.
This Northern Cardinal is an infrequent visitor to my feeder at work. It was good to see him today!
The sight and sound of falling water is mesmerizing, soothing, calming, peaceful. It is easy, healthy, necessary, to lose oneself in the experience.
Rippling water, physically only a few inches deep, can be as deep as your mind and spirit allow it to be.
