Living in the house for five years I never noticed the birds before. Or, maybe there is a message I need to see in their presence here this Spring.
They are everyway...on the roofs of the homes in my neighborhood, perched in the palm trees, gathered on my mailbox as I leave for work, sitting in my backyard hedges when I let the dogs out, etc. Then there is the singing. I hear them first thing in the morning, as I drive around while I work, when I am at the computer in the early evening and sometimes at night. Some birds are ringed doves, others are small black birds, some I don't recognize and last week I spotted a beautiful cardinal.
I am in my fourth year of a personal struggle. I thought of the meaning of these birds. Could it be that they represent a symbol of simplicity? That all is well. Their lives are filled with finding the food (security) they need. Could my life be this simple if I could see it from a bird's eye?
