I am joining Sally today at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ for Blue Monday. Please go over and visit her to see all the other wonderful Blue Monday posts.
Driving to and fro here recently there have been enormous amounts of birds in migration. At times the flocks nearly fill the visible sky.
This weekend we saw some resting in the Blue water along the way.
And when I say some, I mean a lot!
When they are in flight and the sky is lined as far as the eye can see
you feel as if there is something ominous just over the horizon
and you are the only thing that does not know the danger ahead.
You are pushing forward as they are escaping in the other direction, flapping their wings with determination and desperation as if to say...
flee now, flee now!
Ha! Of course it is winter just over the horizon and no matter how brutal it may be I have to thank my lucky stars...
I am not a bird!
