A New Day

The new day dawns.

Stretching out before us with a fresh chance to step forward and make of it what we will.

forestbeachloop137And how will we live this new day? Will it be for others, or will it be for ourselves alone?

Blog-ForestBEachLoop711For love, or for hate?

Blog-Marmee242Will we build, or will we tear down?

Blog-Osprey56Reach out for greater understanding or cling in fear to the safe world we already know?

Osprey78-BlogI guess the choice is ours, and ours alone.

Blog-ForestBeachLoop540We have this day.

Rising Above the Small Stuff

At about this time every summer when I am juuust about ready to scream about the dripping humid heat and the Cape Cod crowds, I am reminded of how small my worries really are.

On my evening walks I hear the cries of hungry, young ospreys filling the skies above the marshes and I am reminded…

Osprey24That they beat the air with tireless wings, day in and day out, in order to learn this thing they absolutely must — fishing.

Osprey77-BlogFor this is survival time. In the days ahead juvenile ospreys must learn to fish so they can eat today and be strong for the long flight home come October.

Rising in the air, then falling, then rising again, somehow with repeated attempts and uncoordinated failures…

Osprey78-BlogThey finally do manage to figure it all out.

Osprey79B-BlogOsprey45-Blog.SIn comparison to their struggles, I guess can handle a little more heat and noise as summer draws to a close here on ole’ Cape Cod.  😉
