Yesterday I heard the last remaining butcher bird, from the family that we have had in our garden for the last I don’t know how many years, calling from the tree outside our study. Then he arrived at the bird bath again:-) Yay!
And this morning, as I lay in bed thinking about getting up, a big flock of black cockatoos flew past, calling to each other. Many of these endangered birds have been killed in the storm, and I have seen and heard a few flying overhead and calling since we got back, some all by themselves. I realise now that after a catastrophe that this is how they find each other again. They have no phones or internet! So our local flock is reforming once more by connecting through their calls.
And when I did get up, and turned my calendar to April, the saying for this month was “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein. I’ve chosen the miracles and LOVE IT!
