Wind Under their Wings:

Wind gust in the northPhoenix area started to hit the 45-50mph mark Friday afternoon pushing through the night into Saturday morning at times sounding like thunder.

You could see the shadows passing over the small yard and the dogs started to bark with a purpose.  It wasn’t until we looked out the bedroom door that we saw two mallards taking refuge from the wind in the pool that we knew the reason.

Pool ducks take flight in strong Phoenix winds.

Desert Life:

  Hummingbird shows us how to re-visit the past for the purpose of releasing it instead of being caught in a permanently backward flight pattern. It also helps us to see that if we step aside we may see our life differently. Hummingbird teaches us to transcend time, to recognize that what has happened in the past and what might happen in the future is not nearly as important as what we are experiencing now. It teaches us to hover in the moment, to appreciate its sweetness.-Constance Barrett Sohodski-
