Meditation

When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing – just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park? ~Ralph Marston

The Geese of Beverly Road

jordan-river-parkway-geese

We’ll take ourselves out in the street
And wear the blood in our cheeks like red roses
We’ll go from car to sleeping car and whisper in their sleeping ears
We were here, we were here
We’ll set off the geese of Beverly Road

Hey love, we’ll get away with it
We’ll run like we’re awesome, totally genius
Hey love, we’ll get away with it
We’ll run like we’re awesome

We won’t be disappointed
We’ll fight like girls for our place at the table
Our room on the floor
We’ll set off the geese of Beverly Road

Hey love, we’ll get away with it
We’ll run like we’re awesome, totally genius
Hey love, we’ll get away with it
We’ll run like we’re awesome

We’re the heirs to the glimmering world
We’re the heirs to the glimmering world
We’re the heirs to the glimmering world
We’re the heirs to the glimmering world

We’re drunk and sparking, our legs are open
Our hands are covered in cake
But I swear we didn’t have any
I swear we didn’t have any

Hey, love, we’ll get away with it
We’ll run like we’re awesome, totally genius
Hey, love, we’ll get away with it
We’ll run like we’re awesome

We’re the heirs to the glimmering world
We’re the heirs to the glimmering world
We’re the heirs to the glimmering world
We’re the heirs to the glimmering world

Oh, come, come be my waitress and serve me tonight
Serve me the sky tonight
Oh, come, come be my waitress and serve me tonight
Serve me the sky with a big slice of lemon

We’re the heirs to the glimmering world
We’re the heirs to the glimmering world
We’re the heirs to the glimmering world
We’re the heirs to the glimmering world

The Geese of Beverly Road (The National)

Two Orange Baby Buffalo!

Little Man is the alpha of the herd, there at the front. If you call him, he’ll come running. The herd follows right behind.

Heading to the food source…..us. We feed them celery, apples, sweet bell peppers, and bread. Lots of bread!

Baby always stays very close to mom. Both calves are approximately three weeks old.

They’re acting much more alert than my last visit.

There are two different kinds of buffalo, and this mom has the horns that go up and straight as opposed to horizontal and curl in.

What are the odds the Good Year blimp was flying overhead? (things that make you think)

My friend Sami and her two daughters with their two friends (and Sami’s friend) came out to meet and feed the buffalo.  It was fascinating to watch the buffalo respond to the girls.  They followed them up and down along the fence line.  Maybe it was their energy level.

This next photo set are of the girls collection of wild daisies, discovering an abundance of ladybugs, and offers to “ladysit” each other’s bugs.  It was quite the picturesque activity!
