It was warm outside and the grass was growing and I wasn’t dead.
The morning light was opening the sky up to itself. I was walking with my mommy and my brother, Zac Joey the Dog. My fav time of day!
There were lots of smells again and things were growing and I was so happy. We were going to my fav spot, during this, my bestest walking time, down to our lake, past the boat ramp to the beach. I loved our little pond. It was pretty big, like a lake, but silly people called it Richmond Pond.
Sometimes people say such silly things.
We were on the path in the woods, smelling and walking and peeing and being together and waking up into the morning like every other morning for all of those years that I lived in my earth jacket. And then—all of a sudden, this giant bird swooped down over us, and all you could see was the bird.
The sky became the bird; the bird became the sky.
We stopped walking.
My mommy cried.
I wasn’t too impressed then because I got all involved in the next moment. Zacy was busy smelling the bunnies so he wasn’t too excited either.
But now, as I hang out in spirit, I feel that birdie inside of me and I remember.
I remember that baby eagle flying off the lake, flying over our heads, waking us up and blessing us with grace.
People! Keep your eyes open down there. Your EarthZone is a pretty cool place.
The blessings are always.
The blessings are everywhere.
The blessings are now.
Rock on and enjoy.
Your friend in Spirit,
