Recently visiting the big city of Toronto in Canada
full of amazing skyscrapers
and swirling highways...
the sight of this astonishing and delightful bird gathering on a crane
when the sun was setting
stopped me in my tracks!
Seeing these dozens and dozens of small winged creatures
coming together in masses at the end of the day,
not on tree-tops, but on the even higher cranes towering above
building sites of even more skyscrapers to come!
From time to time, when there was a brief lull in the incessant background noise of traffic,
I could hear the birds chirping and singing!
There was instant connection to the birds
connection to that moment
What a lovely life lesson these birds represent.
Whatever the circumstances,
we can adapt as best we can
we can chose to mope in a corner
or we can choose to sing!
In my town environment with no view...
which one do I choose to do?
Well, the sun is shining outside as I write these words,
so I think I'll go out and walk where I can see greenery and trees
and I might just sing!
I would like to include the context where this photo was taken below.
Click on the picture to enlarge it and see all those tiny birds lined up
When I step back, I see the bigger picture
and this one gives me a sunset!
