It was mid July, 2018 and the weather here in southern California, was beautiful as always. We had the screenless-windows open. The day was a bit windier than most and we were thoroughly injoying the breeze!
He was sitting on the bed, working on his laptop. I was lounging nearby, reading a book and all was quiet.
We had classical music softly playing in the background…..when all of a sudden…. we heard the rapid feathered wing-beats, enter the room. In came the Mourning Dove through the larger 34 inch (86cm) window!
It flew a precariously (somewhat) straight path, to the other window; missing the bedpost & passing right in front of his face.
As quickly as it entered, it had exited the smaller 22 inch (55cm) window.
We both looked at each other and said, “That was so cool!!!” And I grabbed my camera….
Dove landed on the power line, rather than flying away.
Dove turned around and sat a moment, somewhat recovering from its amazing maneuver
In short time, Dove acted ecstatic, prancing and dancing on the line…. eventually moving closer to us.
Dove leaned towards our gazing eyes as if to say, “Can you believe I just did that?”
Dove skittled along the powerline moving closer to our window.
Dove gazed in at us, making eye contact. With a puffed up chest of pride, Dove exclaimed, “…and my ‘bird-brain-friends’ said I couldn’t do it!”
Just like this dove, we truly are more powerful than we can imagine. And the more we can imagine, the more powerful we become.
