Blackbirds and Omens

There are times in my life when I have been visited by angels or omens.  Three days ago I was coming back from my morning walk.  I noticed a red-winged blackbird sitting in a shrub by the side of the road. Image

I stopped and told him how beautiful he was.  He proceeded to fly down form his perch, cross the road, and turn and fly at my eye level to his perch. All this was within 3-4 feet of me.  I thanked him and went on my way.  Later that day I was cleaning out the garage, a task I have avoided for some time.  I came across a book I thought I had given away:  Ram Dass Still Here which deals with aging, change and dying. All this leads up to last evening when I had a phone call to tell me that someone I dearly love has a serious cancer diagnosis.  So I am sad today but again I am struck by the wonder of life.
