Of Egrets and New Years
The other day I was driving to work and an egret nearly flew into the right side of my car, veered, passed me, and began a straight path of flight right above my hood and ahead of it by only a few feet. It was like it was leading me somewhere. Or it happened to just be traveling straight down the street I take to work. It did not fly up above the cars, but was literally in front of my car flapping along in traffic.
Then, two days later, nearly the same thing. Only this time the bird flew alongside my car for an entire block.
Odd times two.
A week later I was walking BC around the block and as we rounded a corner, an egret was perched on top of a chain link fence we were passing. It had a lizard in its mouth. As I passed him by, I swear he looked at me. Then swallowed the lizard.
Two days later at the park an egret flew down and landed right smack dab in my path. With a lizard in its mouth. Which it proceeded to swallow while I watched, amazed.
I have no idea what it all means.
But my friend Movie started a new blog, of synchronicity and distraction.
And I know she’d like this odd little story.
Happy new blog Movie (do we still call you Movie or is it Sync now?).
Happy New Year Everyone.
2010 was not my favorite. Same with 2009. Still, they had their moments and even the tough stuff has led me here.
But I am ready for a break on the tough stuff.
I’m hoping 2011 will be the start of that better place for all of us.
