Let’s try This

Posted by Whiz on March 5, 2010

Semantics. Maybe that’s part of my problem in establishing a web site. What is a post? What is a page? How do I create picture, columns, blogs on this web site.
I have not written in my Up, Up and Away blog for quite some time. I am posting here today to learn whether it will post on my website as a blog. If it does, then I’m moving to here for future entries.

message from backyard birds

Posted by Whiz on March 5, 2010

Okay, I think that worked. So now I’ll write to my blog. As I sat this morning for my quiet time I noticed a robin land on a branch high up in a tree near my outlook window. Then another. This struck me as unusual as typically robins are hopping around on the ground pecking and digging. These two were perched high up and observing what was going on around them. I remembered that a few days ago, two robins showed up for me, and again, high up rather than on the ground as they perched on the deck visible from my quiet time vantage point. What does robin represent? What are my friend’s message for me? Animal Speak refers to robin as a sign of new growth. When a robin appears it tells me that I can expect new growth in a variety of areas in my life. Also teaches me to sing my own song and keep moving forward. I like this.
Then I watch as two wrens show up investigating the ceramic, blue, Williamsburg bird house that I have had mounted on the back of my house for years but have never seen any birds occupying it. They were having a conversation with first one hopping on the entrance edge peering inside, and then the other, all the while discussing the merits of this home. Evidently didn’t meet their standards as they then flew to the window box outside my window. First the male showed up, pecking and digging, checking things out. Then a whistle, “hey, come check this place out” to his companion who then also flies over and starts her pecking, digging. Nope, doesn’t work for me. So then off to the planters on the side of the deck, first one checks it out, then calls to the partner to join in the investigation. I loved watching this mini-movie of life and was lead to look up wren in my Animal Speak book. These were Carolina Wrens, of course. Cherished by many, including me, and as seen to be a most resourceful and adaptable bird. AS refers to the the bold vocal power, reminds me to sing with confidence. Don’t hesitate to confront any threat, perceived or otherwise with power and spitfire attitude. Hmmmmmm. As I using the resources available to me? Am I too wrapped up in day to day that I’m forgetting to sing? How can I better use more effectively what is available that will teach me to build within my own environment? And that’s what I did with this blog entry on my developing website…..build it and then they will come! Don’t you just love the language of bird?

I committed to doing this. This is supposed to be easy. It isn’t, yet. Let’s try this for my first post here. I invite comments, suggestions, ideas for new postings and categories.
