Do you wake up with thoughts on your mind?

img_3198I woke up to the sounds of hundreds of Parrakets jabbering away. Our tree was filled with the birds at four – thirty this morning. Followed by Doves hooting their morning love calls. Some people wanting more sleep may call them a nuisance alarm; I like the call of nature and find it exhilarating, as an Oropendalo’s alien call shoots through the cool morning air. At six- twenty – two;  more birds arrived and continued our morning symphony.  How do you view this mornings entertainment, a nuisance or nature entertaining you?

For me it brought back a memory; my beautiful wife passing away and the early morning drive back to my house. I entered our home and stared out the sliding glass door and heard noises in the back yard. There was a Blue Jay whistling a beautiful song as if to comfort me through my pain. The Blue Jay brought me memories of  visits to Monterrey, California and the wonderful times my wife and I had. It brought a brief smile to my face, a pause to my sadness if only for a few seconds.

It reminded me of the great things that happens in life; like Einstein and M-C2. What if he woke up from one of his noted naps with the voice of da Vinci ringing in his mind, ” Could this be possible Albert?” Maybe Hemingway woke up after one of his famous nights out in Cuba, and dreamt of an old fisherman struggling with a huge fish. A fisherman he knew who recently passed away and passed on a vision of what could be. Early morning ramblings of what may have or could be, a juxtaposition of the dream world and reality thrown into a pot of maybes. You think it is possible , nature sending messages we need to interpret?

The pleasures of the morning continue; cinnamon raisin toast and hot chocolate and the brewing of coffee permeate my morning air. Mixed with the scent of the morning flowers and trees is heaven. Pura Vida! I hope you have a great day!

Costa Rica


Up in Lake Arenal,it is another perfect morning
The Howler Monkeys barking in all their glory
The orphan dogs barking their replies
The hooting calls by the doves on the power lines

All asking you to awaken and see
The beauty awaiting thee
A cool brisk breeze
Bright colors all around me

Orchids of bright red, purple and yellow
Good morning they seem to bellow
The white blossoms of the palm tree”
“Speaks to tell, “bow down in front of me”

I thank it by giving a salute
The Oropendola gives its gurgling hoot
Beautiful with its vibrant colors
Red, black, and yellow tail
A beautiful Orange beak calling for others

As he stretches he seems to say
“Look at me, I am beautiful today”
I continue to sit on my rocking chair
Enjoying the great morning air

Just another lovely day
Having it my way”
