kinders watch

to see when the birds will come

to eat the treats

they’ve made for them

and hung up high in the trees

so they don’t go hungry in the winter’s snow. 

“be grateful for luck. pay the thunder no mind – listen to the birds. and don’t hate nobody.

“We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds.  We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil.  Serenity is contagious.  If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back.  And a smile costs nothing.  We should plague everyone with joy.  If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing?” 

Swami Satchidananda

my team and i decided to be birds for school today, as we’ve been teaching our kinders about birds and trees and all things natural. j1’s flamingo was darling, j2’s robin was so cute, and my cardinal – well, very colorful, but good thing they told me just before the parade that i was wearing it backwards and was proudly strutting around showing off quite a bit of human tail.
