Living Life

New Beginnings

Journal Entry: Jan 02, 2021 ~ Today is the beginning of another year and the end of one that I am not sad to see go. While it could have been much worse, it has been worse for so many which makes me sad. It is not just one part of our world, but the whole world that has experienced so much unhappiness due to Covid-19. But we have started a new year with promises of a better year as immunizations have started.

While many lives have been impacted, it has also resulted in many coming to better realize what is truly important in life. Many families have developed deeper relationships due to having to slow down the non-ending rush of activities to spending more time together. The holidays have had their challenges also. While being in an older at risk group, while I appreciate the increased protection from exposure; in some ways, I also feel like I’ve been put on a shelf to pick up living at a later time.

This year, I am looking forward to never taking for granted again being able to hug my love ones, visit and share meals with family and friends, and be able to travel whenever I want … and hopefully without a mask. I am grateful even though I feel guilty as if complaining. I am looking forward to this new year of healing, love, fun times, travel, and sharing love. I am planning on living the life I imagined and hopefully you will too. ~

Seeing the World in Black and White

This curious guy seems to always want in on the action. He better watch out for the hunters if he leaves the yard, if he doesn’t want to end up in squirrel gravy.

Pileated Woodpecker, female

I call this large female Pileated Woodpecker a visitor, but she and her mate appear to have moved in. They are the largest birds we have here regularly (about 16 1/2 inches),  besides an occasional visit from a hawk… then everyone scatters, including the squirrels. ~
