My view
















You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait. Do not even wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
            -- Franz Kafka

This view out my window from my desk keeps me smiling each time I look up while sitting at my computer.  This particular bird has steadily been at my feeder for over a month now.  It comes alone and is different from the other birds in my garden.  The Torenia hanging plant has brought humming birds as of late.  They seemed to disregard the hummingbird feeders and prefer the real thing.  I've had many finches, blue jays, cardinals and woodpeckers also flying around.  The assortment has been plenty and I relish in seeing them clearly this year with my corrected vision.  They bring a smile to my face each and every time.  :)

I love your quote and I love the photo.  What a beautiful view!  I can see why it keeps you smiling...  I love to watch the birds feeding and bathing.  We don't get the variety here in So. Callifornia.  I miss the Robins, blue jays, cardinals, etc.  Those are memories from Michigan.  Here we get mostly sparrows and some crows.  Although, we do get the hummingbirds - they actually get up close and personal.  I look forward to seeing the memories (photos) of your trip.
