The Weekly Smile

The weather yesterday was unseasonably warm- close to 70 in February when it should really be in the 40’s! I took advantage of this welcome occurrence by heading out for a walk. I passed a couple on the trail walking in the opposite direction, laden down with binoculars and cameras, and we said a friendly hello. Half way around I met them again and they asked if I had seen the Eagle flying around overhead, which I had. We then stopped and chatted about our mutual love for bird watching, sharing some of the local places we went to and the different species we had encountered. We laughed at how nice it was to share our information and not get a roll of the eyes or a comment like “they’re just birds!” What a pleasure to meet someone who also gets excited at spotting a never seen before bird. As we parted I continued to smile inside and out, at the warmth the sun brought to the day, at connecting with someone over a shared passion, at how being in nature blocks out all else that is on my mind. My weekly smile. What made you smile this week?dscn9585

  1. It was close to 70 degrees here, too! I love looking at all forms of nature, land, sky, plants and creatures! Birds are also among my favorites, Lisa. Your friendly nature and warm smile brought the three of you into a great conversation. 🙂 It is nice to find common ground.

  2. Discovering like-minded spirits is definitely worthy of a smile. Add in the beautiful, unseasonably warm temperatures we’ve been having, and it sounds like you had a bonus day 🙂
