Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

Bird Spirit

Bird Spirit-0631

Last week as I sat at my kitchen table I heard a sickening thud and saw a bird drop from the sky. In that instance his graceful flight was abruptly transformed as he hit the glass wall and fell victim to gravity. I ran outside and found the poor thing trapped nose down between the long spiky leaves of a large cordyline shrub. I took him between my palms and held him securely trying to calm his little beating heart. Thankfully within a few moments his wings started to flutter and I was able to release him to the sky.

This morning the sun revealed this on the offending window.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Change.”

I don't believe that we are any one thing. What and who we are at any moment in time is complex and context dependent. While labels are a useful shorthand that help us to navigate the world, all too often they play into people's prejudices and preconceptions. Here is a list of labels about me that begin with the letter 'p' Psychologist, Parent, Pro-Equality, Pacifist, Photographer, Perfectionist I could just as easily select another letter and make a different list of 'About me' labels. So try not to prejudge its just a list of labels beginning with 'p'

    I know exactly how you feel. Even though we have hawk silhouettes on the glass doors, we still get window strike on occasion. There’s nothing better than a bird who survives this and flies from your hands.
