Last weekend I lifted my nose from the grindstone just long enough to see that the
Wildlife Rescue Center at the end of my street was
hosting an 'open house'.
Sensing this was a rare opportunity (and it was, as this is a yearly event) I drove straight ahead, instead of turning onto my lane……
And my reward was…..
the largest of it's species,
this Ferruginous Hawk
Mr. Horned Owl
a group of terrifically knowledgable and dedicated volunteers,
and an amazingly talented teenager…
who gave me permission to photograph her sketchbook.
Leaving this place left me feeling uplifted
and filled with
and somehow lighter, richer and secure
in knowing there are much more important things going on in this world
than my little project
