And Your Bird Can Sing

The title of my post last saturday “Sembrandos flores” is taken from an old Spanish traditional song my mother taught me, “Ya Viene La Primavera”(here comes the spring).

I took these photos last month of a nest in my backyard. There are baby birds in it now.
So why do I find Springtime and Bird watching inspirational?

For over a month, a Robin has been flying into my backdoor, repeatedly smashing himself against the glass, trying to get into the house. It inspires me to keep trying. despite having success in Art and drama competitions early in life, I gave up because it seemed I too was running into a shut door. I have decided, this time, to finish what I started. like the crazed (or determined) Robin, who is still at it as we speak, this time I will not be denied.100_0407
