Wherever I’ve lived over the past 30 or so years, I’ve put up hummingbird feeders and bird feeders. I don’t know much about birds — the migration habits of various species, how to identify them, etc., nor do I really want to. Maybe you can relate when I say that too much of my time is already filled with things that must be analyzed or evaluated or studied: which probiotic is best, which car should I buy, which insurance plan is best for my needs . . .
Thank goodness our lives are also filled with countless things — birds at a feeder, a sunset, our grandchildren at play, the ocean, the smile of a dear friend — that we can simply appreciate, enjoy, and give thanks for.
