Windmills and delusions: my quest

“Day that I die” by the Zac Brown Band just played and triggered a strong feeling of gratitude in me. It occurred to me that I am fortunate to have a true quest to pursue. This quest is mine and my reason for getting up in the morning. I may be tilting at windmills or suffering delusions. Please refrain from attempts to correct me as the damage would be severe should I find that what I perceive to be good work, work that will better people’s lives and aid in appreciation and conservation of our wildlife and wild places, was a figment. I also appreciate all my friends that see and wonder at both the flesh, and deeper, the bones of nature and indulge my attempts at self expression and creativity. I believe I have enough passion and am developing the skills to recruit others to our club, to have them see what we see.

Just the thought of the past weeks observations in the field brings a smile to my face. I have been a student of nature a long time yet I saw behaviors, landscapes, and species new to me. I rest comfortable in the knowledge that this will always be the case. I want to share with you and others and look forward to hearing more of your experiences, insights and varied perspectives. I have much to learn!

  1. It’s a good club to be a part of. It never gets old seeing things that you are interested in and care for. Better yet, you have the opportunity to share those things you see and experience with others. That is something I also have a passion for. The more people in the club, the better!

  2. I feel very strongly about your club as well. I wish people got to hear and see what I experience every day I go to work on the bird survey. It’s breath taking to see the behaviors of the animals and to hear their joyous songs in the wild. I enjoy every day I have to listen to the birds sing their chorus and to be a part of it. I have to thank you for the wonder I see and feel each morning and I thank God that I am blessed to be able to share my experiences with others and help them see the beauty God shows me every day.

  3. Next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt let down me just as much as this one. What i’m saying is, I know it was my substitute for read, on the other hand actually thought youd have got something intriguing to say. Almost all I pick up is a bunch of whining regarding something that you can fix should you werent way too busy searching for attention.
