Birds!

I grew up near birds for almost my entire life, beginning at age 5 when I lived in Long Beach Long Island, NY. On the beach in Long Beach there were so, so, so many seagulls. I enjoyed watching their behavior sitting alone on the sand in early Fall. Such bullies. Survival I suppose. If you sit and watch them for a while, you will see how clever they are….

Well, I lived the first 30 years without… meaning paycheck to paycheck. Then I remarried and life got easier. Actually, completely different. Completely alien to me … I was allowed to hire a cleaning lady, a landscaper … what? I was extremely uncomfortable. I was more familiar as the worker bee these people were. I felt guilty. It took me over 10 years to stop feeling bad. I felt undeserving….

There is one aspect that many do…

But, the common response from many of the accused has been that they will take time for soul searching. And that is good. However, I am tired of this poor response of “soul searching”.

That just meant that I went to Catholic church on occasion, when my mother remembered to send me to church; of course I got baptized and I made my communion but not confirmation.

I’m a little social butterfly. So I went up to these people and congratulated them on how lovely they looked, wish them a lovely event and asked if I could…
