With the Winter Solstice only a day behind us (unless you live in that part of the world where Summer started yesterday), the skies are shiny and bright in the day, a diamond studded painting on velvet at night. Around here, it gives the frisky feeling of Spring or Fall farther north, without heat sapping body and mind energies. That's do-able!

Yesterday, while my temporary dog friend was out in the yard, she wouldn't come when I called. Rather, something had her vivid attention, something she kept sniffing around. I thought it was a lizard, one of her favorite chase and play toys. But instead, it was a baby pigeon. Maybe it fell from a nest. Maybe its first flight couldn't be sustained. Regardless, there it was, rescued by my furry friend who brought it to my attention.
Gathering its fragile downy body into my hand, I brought it inside and called my go-to in all animal emergencies. She got in touch with a few people, and in minutes I got a call from Ricardo Colon, who works at Fish & Wildlife (787-378-6870 if you have a bird emergency). He showed up five minutes later, gently took the bird and promised me updates. It was amazing and wonderful. Thank you and thanks to the other two men who also got in touch. We're fortunate to have such help here.
Wherever you are, count your joys and multiply them by sharing them with others. That's a good thing in this season promoting good will to all humans (and our four legged friends as well).
Have a trouble-free Thursday. Do something tangible.
