Conversation With a Bird
Here is a recent conversation with a bird.
“Do you enjoy being a bird?” I asked.
“I wasn’t given a choice,” she replied.
“Do you regret that?”
“Feeling regret is a choice. And I’m too busy being a bird for thoughts like that.”
“So what do you think about?”
“I accept who I am. And then I do my best with what I have.”
“Then are you happy?”
“Being happy or unhappy is another choice.”
“So which do you choose?”
“Because each takes conscious effort.”
“Then what do you have?”
I write conversations, like this one, in my journal. It’s a powerful thinking process.
And yes, I talk to birds; I talk to flowers, and I talk to trees. In fact, I talk to anything that’s alive.
I tell birds they’re beautiful. I thank flowers for blooming. And I ask old trees for wisdom.
I even say “Hello” to lizards.
That’s because every relationship depends upon a conversation. And I’m having a conversation with Nature.
