Leaving no trace…

7/52 Great Blue Heron

Water birds are not dependent on a particular place. When they are on the ground, they function on the ground. On the water, they function on the water. In the sky, they function in the sky.

They function perfectly and intuitively wherever they are, moving from one place to another by spontaneous instinct, never lost and never leaving a trace of where they’ve been.

  1. A great metaphor and definition of one of life’s most important lesssons – BEing in the moment.

  2. So smart those water birds. Living like they do, they probably don’t have much stress either.
    A beautiful capture and words we all could use I. Our lives.
