I took this photo on my walk this morning using a retro camera app for added effect. But it's not the retro camera app that is so cool about this picture. Look closer. See the little black blob at the top of the tree? It's a bald eagle. A real, live American Bald Eagle---white head, golden beak, majestic stance.
I have to admit, it was pretty magical to come upon it. We were awestruck. It sat perfectly still as we walked along below it. I'm going to take it as a good sign, today being New Year's Eve and all. In many ways 2010 was a nice year, but in so many others, it kicked my trash as well as the trash of so many of my loved ones. I'm ready for a new year. I have high hopes for 2011, for myself and for my loved ones. I'm ready for a little bit of magic, some delightful miracles, and some unexpected wonders.
Are you ready, too?
