good morning, glories!
today the backyard is abuzz with a handful of hummingbirds
a spectacular sight and extraordinary creature

these recent years... well, it's like being a hummingbird.
dancing quickly from place to place
wings beating so fast they fade into the background

i have another 200 miles to travel today
soon i'll be able to rest my wings for a short while
settling in to the daily schedule
schedules which are monotonously comforting
at times
and at others, routinely boring

this year to keep the routine from becoming too predictable
i want to keep my spirit dancing
with plenty of time to create
to experiment
learn new things
and remember to rest my beating wings when they tire

here's to the balance we all seek...
