Today’s Shot 93

Throwback Thursday

Zen moment

I am always amazed at how the world can be in such a state of unrest… and yet I step outside, and the birds are blissfully unaware, continuing the full chorus line, not worried and unhurried.

They understand the deepest thing of all: the joy of simply being.

    Saw the same here. Lil’ Murph’s cage has a view of the bird feeder. It keeps him occupied, sometimes. My Mom had to be in a place that had a bird enclosure very similar to the one in the video. She loved so much to watch the happy (although caged) birdies until she could no longer. She loved & had birds. As she is gone, I see more reasons to appreciate them. I continue to love them for her. So happy you shared the lovely thought & realization of their state of minds & the video of them.

      I was standing in the hospital watching these happy souls. I know they bring cheer to countless residents and visitors. I love birds as well, and I can only imagine how much joy they brought your mother! And now, even more to you as you appreciate something your mother loved 😊☺️😊

      Thank you so much for sharing your story!

        Not only do they have pretty feathers and cute poochy bellies, you’re correct, they have happy souls. I shall not ask why you were in a hospital, but I hope all is well.

    My favorite time is in the morning….cup of coffee out in the garden watching the birds and squirrels do their thing! Brings my mind to a peaceful place for my morning prayerful meditation!! Finding that place helps all of us stay grounded!!
