This little bird danced around in my golden kangaroo paws this morning, drinking nectar as it hopped from stem to stem, trilling sounds of joy in between sips. It was a delight to watch.
It reminded me of this Henry David Thoreau quote, which gives me chills every time I hear it in one of my favourite movies, Dead Poets Society:
“I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life.”
This bird gets it.
