This is an unusual post from Bird Table News
I have been to a funeral today of someone who I knew when we both started familes together at the same time.
The birds were still singing, the sun was still shining, the countryside still looked lovely and green and I thought how we can all draw comfort from nature
Listening to the wild birds singing I thought what a soothing and centering effect the singing has. It can link us to the world of nature that surrounds us.
The seasons keep turning and that is what life is all about.
What we do when we are here on this lovely planet earth is up to us, but we should not forget that we are only here temporarily and it is the earth itself that sustains us.
Maybe our ancestors understood it more than I do because they lived closer to nature than we do.
