Chad - you're right on. Nice post you had and I was glad to link to it!


These are very important lessons. Sometimes it is hard to get the correct balance of enjoying our life, while remembering we are not the only creatures that live here.

Thanks for the post to our blog...

Larry - I find it amazing how zen thinking can permeate everyday life.
Amber - thanks for visiting and for your cool post!
Kudzu - responsibility, as we honor here, includes our "responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation", which the Birdfreak piece certainly addresses. Thanks for your comment.

the responsibility thing seems a bit tenuous...

Amber Coakley

Wow - thanks for including my chickadee post in your monthly feature! I'll read the other two lessons as well. Thanks again!


I enjoyed reading those posts.-Good choices.-I think that I follow Zen type thinking at times even though I don't really know much about it.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
