Pelicans

Listening to: ‘Now You’re in Heaven’ by Julian Lennon

Am fighting the blues at the moment. Getting annoyed, but not showing it, with people a lot. Perhaps these people are actually annoying and I was comfortably numb before… Feeling dissatisfied with my appearance more often. Fiddling/adjusting with my clothes more often than is really required (probably). I will get through it.

I have things to be thankful for. Small, silly, and/or simple things still bring me happiness and contentment. For example on the train home from the dentist (small new filling and clean up) I saw four birds flying in a line. Slowly, as they came into better view, I saw they were pelicans. The sight of these beautifully large birds, so graceful in flight, moving against the grey sky made me feel happy. I’ve always found the sight of a flying pelican an uplifting sight. To see four was rather special :)

Thanks for sharing such a personal insight. I can relate to this ... I get those periods, and I take great solace from nature and the little things that appear out of nowhere for my benefit.

Take care and lean on your friends ... a true friend will understand, and also know when to give you space.

*hugs* All the best ...

The first half of that post sounds like something I could write right now.

Work is teh sux0r, and getting worse by the day. And I'm in no position to make it any better.
Wondering if it's worth a shot anyway...

I don't know that I've ever seen a flying pelican. Can't recall any. But then, I'm more likely to be looking at the ground than up at the sky.
