I spent the last two days “SOARing” (Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration) at Berry College – the soon to be residence of my seventeen year old daughter. Our time there was a beneficial whirlwind. Along with the hundreds of others that attended, we sat with our mouths open like baby birds, being fed one bite of helpful information after another. By the end, we were grateful for the experience AND grateful that it was over. We are both introverts who can only take so much of a crowd.
I wonder if this female cardinal is a bit of an introvert too. She opted to forego the busy backyard feeders and instead enjoyed a quiet dining experience on the front lawn.
I find her markings and shades of color absolutely beautiful.
She was not at all in a hurry as she hopped about in the grass, searching for food. Sitting quietly and watching her gave my soul a chance to “not be in a hurry” too. Yes…I’d say she is definitely an introvert; after all, it takes one to know one.
