Wordless Wednesday

This weekend will be spent at a retreat.  Guiding others into community and silence.

A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see. Inspired by SouleMama.

Feather

Consider the feather. When I think of creation, nature, biology, I consider the feather. Each one so very dependent on the one next to it. Each one with its own part to play in flight or famine. Some feathers determine just which direction to go and which speed to travel, like surrogate counselors with you at every moment. At first glance they look similar but upon closer investigation you see that each is as individual as a fingerprint. Each varied in design, size, color and role. How incredible that the straight fibers that make up the feather can have such defined markings as spots and stripes and other patterns. Feathers. Amazing. Nature is amazing, as is the world.

All this because I picked up a feather.
