Jordan Lake: I found myself very much in need of some peace and tranquility this evening. I went back to this morning’s cruise with Captain Doug and brought up this great egret and then let the 12-year-old child within me have a hand in making this note and reminder that peace, contentment and tranquility are needed throughout this whole world. Have a blessed evening.
Great Egret Flight
Jordan Lake. Thought I would share with you a close-up of the great egret that adorned this morning’s Natural Minute. Hope you enjoy his flight!
Doc Ellen’s Natural Minute 09/12/2022
Jordan Lake. A lovely Great Egret floats into the natural minute and brings the haze of the pre-dawn sun with it. Take care, be safe, stay well.
Ruffle One’s Feathers
Jordan Lake: When we humans say that someone has their feathers ruffled, we usually mean they’re upset about something. However I can promise you that this great egret was not ruffling his feathers because he was upset. Nope, he had just flown to this perch and simply decided to have a good shake. I like the egret’s definition of “ruffle one’s feathers“.
Doc Ellen’s Evening Note 09/17/2021
Jordan Lake. The moon, edging towards fullness on Monday, was caught in layered clouds. The great egret winged towards a safe roost in the trees for the night. May your sleep also find soft lit dreams in which to safely dwell for the night. Peace and Grace, Doc Ellen
Doc Ellen’s Evening Note 10/31/2020
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
