Wednesdays on Whidbey: Eagles, Great Horned Owls and Freedom.
by Diane Wyzga | October 27, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Camden, Maine!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey.
No matter how many times I see them soar overhead, chase predators away from their nest, cast a long shadow over a field, perch on a tree top, or chirp with their high-pitched whistles, my heart stops when I see an eagle. Click to hear the sounds.
I hold my breath. A fleeting moment or three.
Late at night I hear their ping pong mating calls: the 5-note hoots of the Great Horned Owls courting. Click to hear the sounds. And again in the wee small hours of the dark morning they’re back as if to say we’ve been out and about all night but it’s time we found a place to nest in for the day.
In these moments something transcendent takes place in my being and I’m no mere earthly mortal tethered to earth but a soul sent to fly. It is then I remember, I remember, I remember how to be free again.
Question: What Nature experience un-tethers you and sets you free to fly as your one true Be-ing self?
