Another lovely Tweet from my friend Joyce Smith. Here’s what she has to say about it:
It’s now getting lighter in the mornings and the birdsong is great to hear.
During my hour’s birdwatch last week I saw robins, blue tits, great tits, starlings, blackbirds and wood pigeons – all competing with the squirrels! At other times a wren sang beautifully on my fence and a crowd of long tailed twists twittered on the bird feeders. I guess some of you saw more than I did?
This starling and wood pigeon were a display of being in unity and sharing together. Joyce
A note about Hildegard of Bingen by Matthew Fox who said this about her in his book Original Blessing.
Hildegard was one of the “great creation-centered mystics of the West.” This multitalented and prolific abbess of a Benedictine abbey was an influential preacher, healer, scientist, composer, theologian, artist, and poet. She coined the term viriditas, or greening power, connecting it closely with creativity.
