Little victories: It’s the first steps that matter most— the bud on the twig, not the flower, the nearly imperceptible shadow on the grass before the heel lifts off the springy soil. See on the wall next to the entryway door, the small beakful of mud and twig that clings to the wall like soil to a rootball— that twig and tiny portion of mud, not yet a nest but still more than clay and twig, and no longer without life.

I particularly like this one, Tammy! As my Latin teacher (and librarian, where I worked for her)used to say, over and over: A job well begun is half done. I suspect I said that to you at one time or another!
Thank you for putting your work in email form. I always check my email but links can go without being checked for months.
It is a strange and different world since the pandemic. May hope and new portals for life keep arising. Your eyes and awareness are valued.
