I have a plan to enjoy every delicious moment this month. I want to have fun, take photos, write, be outdoors as much as possible, and - well - do it all! But, and this is so very important. I want to move in slow motion and with mindfulness.
October has started perfectly. Last night, I attended a meeting of the Three Rivers Birding Club. I love this group of people. They sponsor GREAT meetings and outings, have a very strong membership, and have helped teach this novice birder about more than a few new birds.
The meeting last night was, as usual, awesome! Bill Thompson III was our guest speaker. Yes, Bill of the Birds, known for his birding skills, books, The Birder Watcher's Digest, and his wonderful blog, shared stories and music. He is a funny, FUNNY man.
We all laughed at his stories of birding adventures and mishaps. We even had a sing along. "Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowbirds..." Oh, it was a good time. Thank you, Bill!
