More about my fall. Having to rest when, I feel, I should be working is the ultimate punishment for me. I enjoy being productive but, I guess, I need to learn to be content with just being at times since my age will require this more as I climb the senior ladder. Maybe that’s why the universe/God allowed this accident to happen.
At any rate, the other day, since I can’t sew, read or do anything else that requires glasses which I don’t have now – and could not wear on my sore face if I did have them, I decided to sit on my sun porch and listen to my CDs. Now you may picture a beautiful view to enjoy – not so. I live in a wonderful senior park but the houses are very close together and the only view to be enjoyed is the carport next door. In this room, in a comfortable chair is where I keep my CD player with my German CDs since no one else enjoys listening to foreign music I keep them isolated – for private moments.
I was just getting into my favorite Strauss waltzes (after all, I am German) when I noticed a bluebird fly in and perch on a straggly branch of our only tree in the yard. It may not have been an official “Bluebird” but it was a pretty little bird that was blue. He sat there a while and then started dancing – yes, dancing. He kept perfect time to the melody and sat still between the songs. I am sure his movements were totally intentional.
What a show – the unexpected events always seem to be more impressive on one’s emotions. It made my day – and I learned another good lesson – slowing down and listen to the music in life is as productive as going to work, cleaning house or knitting a sweater.
Who was that little bird anyway ?
