The beloved

It was one of those times I wasn’t feeling too well so I took it easy by camping around a week on Prado Reservoir near Corona, California. There was a good sized lake home to thousands of birds of all kinds. In the mornings and evenings I’d take long, slow walks around the shore as a healing meditation of sorts. During one of those walks I saw this sunset beauty, a Great Blue Heron, as it alighted from a tree. It soared with such grace and elegance I felt my soul lift with it, bringing deep feelings of gratitude and bliss. When you witness the beloved, you become the beloved.

So glad to see you active here again. Maybe this will spur me on to do the same. Keep this tremendous bird photo at the forefront for awhile. It shows your phenomenal spirit in action. I love my son.

Great Blue Herons have always been a personal talisman of mine. Your photograph lifts my spirits and I see the earth from a heron’s-eye view. Thank you and keep sharing beauty!
