Jordan Lake: The cold autumn evening is brightening with stars. The pair of mourning doves are settling down on their sheltering roost for the night. May you also find a safe and warm roost for the night. Peace and Grace, Doc Ellen
Jordan Lake, Doc Ellen’s Evening Note: I celebrate October 31 as All Saints’ Eve. A time to remember those gone Home before me: be they family, friends, furred or feathered companions. I miss them all and visit their memories, gently, in the crispness of the autumn eventide. Take the thoughts of those you also cradle within your soul, with you into the beginning of a new month on the morrow. Peace and Grace, Doc Ellen
Jordan Lake Dam, Haw River: Doc Ellen’s Evening Note 10/20/2020. Just as this fledgling great blue heron is gathering himself to take the mists of dreams with him to his evening roost, may you too gather your dreams and sleep well. Peace and Grace, Doc Ellen
Jordan Lake, Haw River: Doc Ellen’s Evening Note 10/04/2020. It is a comfort to me to know that there are a pair of eyes joining those of the Creator to make certain I have undisturbed sleep and sweetest of dreams. Thank you red-tailed hawk for being a guardian this night.
There is trust between these two double-crested cormorant friends. One watches and one sleeps. May you drift to sleep thinking of your precious friendships too.
Jordan Lake, Haw River: Doc Ellen’s Evening Note 09-01-2020. Gently flies the mourning dove, into evening skies. Follow her with your thoughts drifting towards sleep, deep and healing. Peace and grace, Doc Ellen.
