Sunday, Saying Yes to the World

Once upon a time, when women were birds, there was the simple understanding that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy. The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated.

This is such a good reminder to sing...just to keep one's vocal chords working! I found that when trying to engage in conversation the other day, I stumbled to find words that worked.

You always touch the strings of my heart. I heard one of our local bluebirds this morning after our cold weather and heavy rains. He/she was tentatively testing the early morning with those timid chirps that only bluebirds can make.
