  • Perhaps I had a vision walking in moonlight

    Bird Droppings November 14, 2014 Perhaps I had a vision walking in moonlight As I walked out in the morning cold today, the a little more than a third of a full moon’s glow lit the area still giving me a vivid view of all around. While only just a small part of the moon […]

  • Looking at a cloud in the darkness

    Bird Droppings November 13, 2014 Looking at a cloud in the darkness I am still warming my hands as this was the coldest morning of the fall to date. I went out to check my wife’s car and off in the pines a great horned owl called. I stood listening for several minutes focusing on […]

  • Spirituality is it an uncertain certainty?

    Bird Droppings November 7, 2014 Spirituality is it an uncertain certainty? “When you examine the lives of the most influential people who have ever walked among us, you discover one thread that winds through them all.
