Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂 Me 1 copy

Spring has arrived in full force with the warming of the weather… my friends, the little dandelion, are making their presence known… 🙂

Thinking that perhaps in another lifetime, I would like to be like the little dandelion with its zest for life….  🙂

Will to Live
I think of all things that show a zest 
For life, the dandelion beats the rest.
The little winged seeds from its white fluff ball
Settle and grow with no urging at all. 
Settle in most unlikely places
And soon there's a crop of dandelion faces.

They are man's worst pest, but a child's playthings.
Sometimes I wish I had light down wings 
Like a dandelion seed, and could settle at will
On a velvety lawn or a sun-spread hill, 
And live with the eagerness and zest 
Of the wanton little dandelion pest.
(MARY TRIPLETT)

Hello Diary,

With the warm and pleasant weather, the migratory birds are mingling with the local birds and their voice is heard in harmony as they great me every morning when I venture out to observe the weather and this morning they were in full force…  🙂

 

And speaking of the birds, everyone enjoys watching the birds, with their color and voices, from time to time, right?.. Well, the folks at Cornell University has a program called “Ebird” where one can enter their observations… it helps the students gather knowledge, they can learn about the birds habits top help the birds and with that it also helps them to research the changes with the climate and environment… I have seen a good number of changes concerning the birds over the years, telling me that change is in the winds….  🙂

 

 

Soooooo, I get me a cup of Earl Grey and then I sit down and have a leisurely moment relaxing and taking notes with my bird watching ( I do not observe every day like I do the weather)… 🙂

I even spent a couple of dollars on some bird watching books to help me identify species of migratory birds that may be new to the prairies…. 🙂

Once I have finished my cup of tea and taking notes, I venture indoors and open the Ebird website…. 🙂

I then enter my observations… 🙂

I gather more knowledge, the young folks at Cornell gather more knowledge and we help each other hopefully help make this world a better place… 🙂 And anyone can do it, age makes no difference… I am 77 years old and I simply follow my heart.. 🙂
Well, I had better close for now… the excitement here on the path builds as adventures await me.. But I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise..  🙂

Hope your heart is filled with love and happiness and until we meet again..

May your spirit only know peace
May your heart only know love
May all your dreams come true
May your life’s journey be filled with happiness
And life is all that you wish for it to be….
                       (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

  1. Ornithology is a science where amateurs do almost as much as the professionals. Well done to you for your efforts, and keep watching the skies for those birds of prey soaring high overhead.

  2. I’ve always loved dandelions and don’t consider them pests at all. I recently saw a bundle of dandelion leaves for sale in the produce section of the grocery store. I just think they’re pretty. Thanks for appreciating them.
