Passing through the convenience store parking lot, I spotted these birds huddled together. Usually I see scads of them lined up on phone or electrical wires. I’m sure you have, too. I wonder why they all hang together on the same strand with maybe one rebel that sits off on his own. But for the most part, they stick together. This was a little different. I don’t know if I ever saw this many perusing a parking lot from the same bushy perch.

2013 – a year of usual, a year of being more observant, a year of huddling with friends and family and making the best of life. 2013 – a year of being less rebellious, less arbitrary, and more in tune, more present.
