Last night’s walk did not come to complete fruition. While strolling around the lake I came upon a wounded Ibis. It couldn’t stand up. I knew if it worked its way into deep water it would drown. I pondered about what to do since I’m actually afraid of birds with big beaks. I called my friend Jimmy who lives around the lake just a few streets from me. I told him about my dilemma and he came right away. He waded into the water, captured the bird and we drove to my place. I grabbed my cat carrier and we were off to the bird sanctuary and rescue on Indian Rocks Beach. We dropped it off and hoped for the best. I felt like I’d given some small contribution to nature. I was rewarded for that today on my walk.
Near the end of my fourth lap, I decided to sit for a few minutes in the shade of a young tree. As I gazed out at the lake this thought came to mind:
“The sun kissed the water and created a visual like a million diamonds floating on the surface. Not diamonds created from brethren’s blood, but diamonds created from the kiss of nature. If I could place that upon my finger, I would know the meaning of a pure and mutual love. Give to nature and she gives back.”
I also noticed some rather interesting people lounging around the lake.
That is all.
