MORNING MUSINGS - Maybe it has something to do with age, or perhaps with all we have had to deal with these past 18 months, but I have a better appreciation than ever before of the early morning as a time to reflect and contemplate life and spirituality, the beauties of nature, the blessings of family and life in general, and so on.  So it was one early morning that I was able to capture a photo of a Carolina Chickadee basking in the early morning sunlight as though it was in deep contemplation itself.  The advice of Roman philosopher Marcus Aurelius is worth taking into consideration: "When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive--to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
