From Earth Bound: Daily Meditations for All Seasons by Brian Nelson,
“You can hear them morning, noon, and night, calling to each other, getting the work of this new year underway. The birds are returning, scavenging your neighborhood to make their homes, building cradles for their young, ceaselessly flying onward to the next task.
Terry Tempest Williams writes, “I pray to the birds because they remind me of what I love rather than what I fear.” Robins, jays, and wrens are the priests of springtime, confidently going about their rituals, selflessly offering inspiration, never resting upon their laurels (or elms or maples). Enter their green cathedral and sing a song of praise to the new season along with them.”
