So, what will this new year bring us. I looked out the window this morning, after putting out the bird feeders and a few piles of bird seed on the ground. What I saw pleasured me. There were a pair of doves feeding on the seed that I put on the ground, so I figured it was a sign of a peaceful year to come. Then my hopes were dashed when the two doves started fighting over the food. Why, I wondered, when there was more than enough for all of them and the piles were scattered far enough apart.
Oh well, why should I let a couple of doves predict what kind of year I will have. Whatever comes this year, I am sure we all will be able to take it in stride and hopefully without bickering between ourselves. Bickering and fighting doesn't solve a thing. Take those two doves, the fight didn't help either of them, because when the one flew away to get out of the squabble, the other took off to follow it. Doves are supposed to be a sign of peace. The cardinals are always chasing each other away and fighting, maybe that is because when they look at each other they see red. . . OK, no fighting today, just have a great day, you hear?
