Birds of a Feather

Monday Motivation!

I took these two pictures at separate times in my career.  The one on the left portrays pidgins flocking in unison off the South end of the Tybee Island Pier and the one on the right was taken at the Savannah Wildlife Refuge north of the South Carolina/Georgia border.  I found these two photos while searching through old galleries and I decided to create a blog post using the two in tandem.

There are numerous connections that can be made between nature and our everyday lives.  Life is social.  We depend on one another for support in hard times as well as bond together at times of joy and exuberance.  It is a quest really.  We strive to find greatness as a group when challenged as a whole and also find ourselves venturing out on our own to search for a sense of identity and attempt to create our own path.  Both behaviors are equally as important in both nature and everyday life.  As for the Avian Species depicted above, it is a struggle to survive day in and day out.  It is hard not to marvel at all life that surrounds us.  The tenacity of a flock of pidgins tossing around in a fierce wind or a lone turkey vulture scrounging, searching tirelessly for its next meal.  What are some times you have felt challenged? What sort of mentality do you use on a day-to-day basis?  I hope this short article gave you a little Monday motivation…  Thanks for tuning in and I look forward to writing more this upcoming week!

“A Hidden Gem”

Isle of Hope, Georgia…

Has there ever been a place where you felt at rest?  Have you ever experienced such tranquility that the world dissipates slowly around you and time stops.  This is how I feel when visiting Isle of Hope’s Bluff Drive.  Located on the south side of Savannah the historic drive lies quiet beneath towering 200 year old oak trees, that would make anyone feel small.  Spanish moss dangles and sways in the gentle river breeze above you as you hear birds chirping all around. It is hard to navigate the historic drive because of all the wear and tear as you dodge pot holes and large cracks in the black concrete surface.  It is this rustic feel that gives this quaint drive so mu13ch character.  This is where I grew up and I revisit this place from time to time to both recapture old memories as well as create new ones.  Is there a place in your life that holds true to who you are and serves to be a special reminder of where you came from?  Please comment and share your personal experience and pictures of your special place in the comment feed below.  I’d love to hear from you.  Thanks as always for tuning in! Until next time friends.
