Our good friend Rich Field runs all over the world doing legal work. He is also a fine performer and appreciator of many kinds of art. After my last post, he wrote to say that my birds reminded him of a dance performance he had seen a few years ago. This performance included the poem, "Wings", by Susan Stewart. I love this poem very much and I wrote to Susan who kindly gave me permission to share it with you. So I set myself to take some bird pictures in which I could show that flying is like dancing. And this morning, while walking with my husband, we saw this great blue heron against a cloudy sky. So this post is given to you with appreciation for our friend Rich, for Susan and her wonderful poem, for this bird, and for all the ways that so many human and other beings express their courage and beauty in the world.
