Monday's Nature Quote

I pray to the birds because I believe they will carry the message of my heart upward. I pray to them because I believe in their existence, the way their songs begin and end each day--the invocations and benedictions of Earth. I pray to the birds because they remind me of what I love rather than what I fear. And at the end of my prayers, they teach me how to listen.

~ Terry Tempest Williams, Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place


  1. You do come up with the most thought-provoking quotes. When geese fly overhead and take my heart with them, am I praying?

  2. Sometimes I wonder if the group of birds I am watching emptying out the bird bath would have been an equal number of dinosaurs frolicking around at the local waterhole.

  3. Absolutely.

  4. Oooh, wonderful thought, Bob!
