This morning, I sat on my porch, as is my custom, thinking about traveling and enjoying everything human beings can possibly accomplish before I depart someday for my home planet.
While I was dreaming, I noticed more birds than one might see in an aviary enjoying the seed we use to fill the bird feeders daily. I realized the feathered creatures consume their daily meals in safety, free from the squirrels that drive the birds away from my neighbors’ properties.
In my yard, where the birds flourish, sit my two large bird dogs, patrolling their territory.
That is ironic.
