the bird...



Hold
fast
to
dreams, 
for
if 
dreams
die, 
life
is a 
broken
winged
bird 
that
cannot
fly.

I shall be a bird forever but i want to be a dolphin too . . .

well, there is the concept of duality, so you could always utilize it! :)

what two wonderful creatures to aspire to be! i've always thought maybe an eagle or condor for me if i were to be a bird - but i have such an affinity for horses and wolves - i've always thought i was one of those in another life -

oh, and you definitely do seem a bird to me! a beautiful soft delicate little chirping creature always happy and always bringing joy to others! :)

well, I have no urging to be a bird, at least not in this life , but I sure do love the little guys and have a lot of them around here, lucky me...I have been feeling so guilty as I have not fed my hummers and their food bowls have been licked clean...my thinking: they needed to migrate and then I read they DON"T need to migrate so tomorrow out I go to fill all three, raining or no....poor little guy up there in that picture, gypsy, you need to take care of him quick!

Dare to dream..dare to fulfill them and dare to live up to them. That's life, right?

Lovely.

By the way, you look beautiful in the picture.

Love

oh, ladylinda! you are the kindest thing! but i know what you mean - i feel so guilty too - and even when my daughter lets her feeders get empty, i'm all over it - and whenever the little ones and i go out and about we always feed the sea gulls and other little winged creatures who happen by - as a matter of fact, i've even gone thru drive thru windows to buy a sandwich so i could have the bread to feed the birds on cold days if i don't have anything else - oh, about this little feathered friend, i gave him first aid with the bandage and all - and i'm monitoring his progress! have my first aid kit right beside me -

have a wonderful day, lady!
