Cattle Egrets

A  L  O  H  A !
One Bird - Two Birds,

Take some pictures -

Add some words.











" I have powerful friends 
in high places. 
Birds sing 
where I walk, and 
children smile 
when they see me coming."
                   Hunter S. Thompson













"The shell must break
 before the bird can fly." 
                     Alfred Tennyson


























“If I am not for me, 
who is for me;
 and if I am (only) 
for myself, 
what am I? ”  
              Hillel



















Egrets follow their benefactor
on his tractor,
who stirs up the insects
for them to eat
and inspects!

Light Party

A L O H A !

“A truly great book 
should be read 
in youth, 
again 
in maturity and 
once more in old age, 
as a fine building 
should be seen 
by morning light,
 at noon 
and by moonlight.” 
                  Robertson Davies








"Now is the time 
of the illuminated woods, 
every leaf glows 
like a tiny lamp; 
one walks through 
their lighted halls 
with a curious enjoyment."
               John Burroughs










" I have never 
started a poem yet 
whose end I knew.
 Writing a poem 
is discovering. "
                 Robert Frost










And as the Party Boat sails on. . . 


Thank You
for Sailing these Seas.
You make it
a party!
