|Great Blue Heron: (Click on the picture for more detail of its colorful head)|
I was inspired by her beauty and her ability for a silent take-off from the island she had been standing on.
Her wings were so long and her flying effortless.
I ate 3 Dove chocolates while boating this morning, and the quote inside the first one said, "Keep life moving forward. Looking backward is only for time travelers." And, that is what the great blue heron does. She always looks forward to the next meal.
The next quote said, "We are all stories in the end, just make it a good one." The great blue heron is a bird of Native American symbolism and myth. They are symbols of good luck and patience.
And, the last quote was right on, "Everyone has a happy ending. If you're not happy, it's not the end." So, keep soaring through life and make it the best one you can.
