For the Love of Nature

I stand at the banks of the waterway at Kingfisher Lookout, and spot a field of blackbirds perched on golden stalks. Red-winged blackbirds abound in Texas in the winter months. At home, they symbolize the return of summer.

We are at the Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park – acres and acres of trails and exploration for nature lovers. A tram takes visitors around the park hourly. We hopped off a few stops back and have hobbled our way here, where we await the final ride of the day. Woodpeckers, Green Jays, and finches flit about, but it is the arrival of this little fellow who makes my day. Isn’t nature grand!

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
