“We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential.”
– Ellen Goodman

We’ve been battling wind these first days of the new year and moving cattle while trying to keep our feet (and wheels) firmly planted on the ground. I’ve been trying to shoot but have come up with almost nothing. It’s been a little frustrating. But like this pheasant, with poise, I will take these winds head-on and power through because even though it’s been a somewhat flawed start, there is great potential.

Here’s to keeping our balance as we look to improve ourselves and rise above.

Onward and Upward,

      Thanks Debra, those boogers are hard to capture in the camera. They pop out of the tall grass and poof, they’re gone. This was the only shot out of several.

    Beautiful bird. Balance is the key that we most often forget.
