Photo Friday – An April Afternoon

A quiet afternoon in April, my time my own to fill as I desire, I step outside on the deck, listen to the sweet sound of silence, breathe deeply, and drink in the view.

I first moved to Kamloops when I was eighteen-years-old and, except for the past seven years we spent in Washington state, this city has been my home.

I had no idea it was also home to birds like this. It’s funny what you see when you slow down enough to pay attention.

What a joy it is to have the gift of time to slow down and get to know our new neighbours. I am blessed.

    Linda, what a view! And such beautiful birds. I love your photo Fridays. And it is wonderful to make online friends who, when they retire and move away, are still nearby. :)
