I am so fond of this little guy. He seems to be alone, so far. If I remember correctly, he gets here before the females. Maybe he is supposed to be weaving a nest? Oh, bad boy! He plays in the hedge, and poses on the fountain, and sips his nectar. I am thinking he had better get busy, now, or maybe he is buffing-up?
A few years ago I was really sick. As I recovered, I watched the Ravens build their nest, and raise two raven babies. They did not come back for two years, even though I have pined for them. I wrote poetry about my attachment to them, I felt like they were my babies. I must have written about that portal, and the voyage, and today I do not have the strength to go back into the archives so I don't repeat myself. You see, I am sick again, though thankfully, it is the first time since then that I've been ill...and I think the Ravens are inspecting the tall Pine tree.
I called Toby the Acupuncturist. He is seeing me early afternoon tomorrow. I coughed right into his ear, apologetically, and he said, "Oh no, that just confirmed something for me. Laura, that is involving your whole lungs." And I have to say, he does not say this in an alarmist way, he says it very thoughtfully, in such a way that I start getting better right then and there. And my friend N2 had just said to me, "When is your appointment, LC?" I blurted out, "TOMORROW!!!" and hung right up and called Toby!
I told him that I had been into the halls of Kaiser three times in the past few weeks. "Ooohhhh." he said with concern. You see, I am one of those people who seem to know too much for my own good. I know exactly where this "bug" made it's entrance into my body temple.
At the T-ball game a couple of weekends ago, I was standing under this tree. I looked up to see this array of buds and blossoms breaking out in a frenzy. "The Spring energy will do this," says Toby. And I am so looking forward to the boost his treatment will provide. Looking around our yards, and vineyards, the Oaks and Buckeyes, it is easy to see to which he refers. Everything is bubbling forth, blooming, and the rain has not stopped. We are all over-loaded with moisture!
I didn't even notice Easter! I slept through Saturday and Easter Sunday. And look! I am upright now!
