TODAY’S TOUCHSTONE – WHEN A HAWK APPEARS

Charlene Costanzo, author of the upcoming The Twelve Gifts From The Garden, has a few wise words on the beauty of nature, take a look.

“There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it. —Charlotte Eriksson    The past few days, this stunning hawk has been right outside our window. It’s almost impossible to not see him, sitting on that arch that stands over our garden, which is right outside our back door.   It’s one thing – a beautiful thing –  to see the many song birds, cranes, and squirrels that feed and play in our back yard. But a bird of prey so near reminds me that the natural, the wild side of nature is all around. I am in nature; and I am a part of it. We all are.   Let’s notice nature today, really notice her with appreciation, even if it is a blade of grass growing through a sidewalk crack.
Instead of taking life, nature, and creation for granted, as we so often do, let’s find ways to honor Mother Nature and take some action and attitude to protect her. With love and wonder,
Charlene
