For readers who are interested in birds and live in my part of the globe.. I have been watching for the nuthatch, always a visitor to the various feeders, I have found them absent these past months. I have not seen one for at least a couple of months.. The past two winters they were always around, and I did hear them early in the season.. but not lately. If you come across one/two .. please drop me a line. Thanks.
I saw a headline the other day, “the age free life” it s not about a number, it is about energy, balance and joy. I had to ask myself how old the author of that article was, flipping through the pages, I saw that the oldest group they mentioned was 50’s. Checking the cover of the magazine I saw it was from 2016. Here we are in 2023, and not much has changed, except that the writer would now be 7 years old. In my own circle of friends I have seen the difference a few years make in not only their health, (my own included) but in their stamina and outlook on life.
Today being Ancestors day at the church, we celebrate what was, and look at what is, and we express our gratitude. In the magazine I was mentioning there was a challenge… It read, enter the gratitude challenge! what are you thankful for… I thought to send out this challenge to you, how many times do you say thank you in a day. Are you thankful for ???? what comes to mind?

La vie est belle – Life is beautiful.. and one of the reasons it is, is because YOU, yes you are in it. I may not know you, and you and I may never cross paths, but you are reading this post and sharing this moment with me.. For this.. I thank YOU.
Make today a “give back day” We can live our daily lives owing to our ancestors, our elders, and the work of our predecessors. Above all, kindness for others is the best way to give back.Perfect Liberty 2023. 11
