a little bird told me

I pulled into my driveway after a hike with my dog. For a minute or two I sat there as I pondered the enormity of a particular problem I’m dealing with today. “What do you think I should do, Scott?”, I realized I had said this out loud. No sooner said than something caught my eye.

And several times it tried to see itself in my mirror. Fluttering like a hummingbird directly in front of it. I pulled my iPhone out and took these shots.

I am here with you.
I hear you.
I see you.
I see myself in your reflection.
Nobody has died.

You know we can fly.
Fly.
