Blackbird fly

A trip to Walmart… one full of succinct messages I never expected

Ok folks. To tell you the truth, I was just going to take a pic, post on a few social platforms, and talk about how cute and helpful this blackbird was, sitting on my car as I returned with my groceries from Walmart. I took a few pics, and when I went to make a vid out of it, I noticed the blue and yellow walls in the background.

Well, what to make of this? The horror and sadness of the war in Ukraine, hits me with sadness daily and I have to limit my YouTube time because of the amount of time I will spend scanning through all reputable media for updates. So, when I go to talk about this cute bird sitting on my car, I was smacked hard with the background colors.

I’m sharing this because the blackbird totem, speaks about protection. Protect your family, your job, your home, your friends… your country. Regardless of how painful this is to me, I will continue to scan the news, and pray, pray, and pray more. Will you?

Many blessings, Sandi

Leaving the nest?

Growing up… leaving the nest. Vid: by Sandi, Northern New Mexico.

I nearly had a panic attack. Outside, the sound of birds is a welcome and wonderful song. A world of music that never stops. But when I heard hungry little fledglings that are chirping in desperate need, I went looking for a ladder. Because if something happened to mom, well, Sandi to the rescue!

As I was about to get a ladder, and began my ascent up to bird palace, I noticed the mom fly back to the nest, where she tried to push an anxious baby back into safety, as it seemed to be hanging over the nest nearly losing its footing. She pushed the baby back further into the nest and she flew away when she saw me, so I came back inside.

Don’t worry, I’ll keep an eye out!

Keep growing folks, love one another, and give each other a helping hand. Many blessings, Sandi
