The Robin's Nest

It doesn't get much better than a robin's nest filled with eggs just outside your window in the Springtime.

The faster you go, the less you see. It is easy to get going so fast that tunnel vision sets in and all you see is a target in the distance. You may eventually get to your destination, but at the cost of enjoying getting there.

Living simply allows one to live at a pace where you can notice little things. You can see what you might have missed in a rush. Lately I have been taking time to notice a busy little robin outside my window.

Over a few days of patiently watching her movements she adapted to my presence and led me to her nest. With mom perched close by I parted the branches only to have one of those classic nature moments.

I saw one perfect blue egg in an equally perfect nest. A few days later I took the picture above and was delighted to see three eggs.

Is there anything more hopeful and optimistic than a robin's nest filled with eggs in the Springtime?
