Our moon is in the waning crescent, 8% illumination.
I don’t really know if I have anything more on hummingbird birds but… Well, I’m still enamored with them and think that they bring a certain magic that I find healing. That’s the real bottom line to it right there. Things that have healing qualities should be nurtured, right?
And birds in general have this ability to lift us out of our personal situation, to transcend it. I remember watching flocks of Canada geese high up over my boring suburban neighborhood on their adventurous migrations. Or the crows so free that lived their lives around the island where I did my boot camp. Our kind was being so intensely educated and they winging around as they pleased and taking part in the endless banter of their kind; it looked like fun. And the hummingbirds so agile and fast we can at times maybe just even temporarily live their lives with them.
And bird feeders in general are fun and comforting to watch. And the hummingbird feeders are the simplest and easiest to maintain, additional pluses. We are so lucky that the little birds are here in our local environment year round.
But don’t ever make the mistake of saying around them that they are little! They really don’t come off as little if you watch them for any amount of time. They are brave and feisty way beyond their size. So maybe we can become brave and feisty beyond our size just being around them. I think that it could rub off.
So maybe every new cancer patient should get a bird feeder of some sort as a gift at some point in their treatment as part of their treatment. I think that it is particularly strong medicine. But one needn’t have to be a malade to benefit of course.
October Wednesday loves, Felipé.
