Winter Break


So much news, so many possible blog topics, so much noise in the cybercafe every day…. I have this huge list of topics to blog about, but instead, I found myself drawn to the beautiful calm sounds of nature this past weekend, to places where the wild things have lovely, sometimes loud voices but nothing accusatory, condemnatory, dishonest or degrading.

Just the splash of ducks taking flight…

The distinctive “whoosh” of the giant wings of great blue heron…

Eagles in unexpected places…

While others keep watch from their aerie..

And some are just happy to sit for portraits…

For a few hours of peace, quiet and beautiful birds, visit the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge in Dorchester County, or the Eastern Neck Wildlife Refuge near Chestertown.  In just about two hours, you can regain sanity!
