Vigilance: The action or state of keeping careful watch for possible danger or difficulties.

I saw this red-shouldered hawk while Heather and I were hiking in Rockwood Reservation, but I'm sure it saw me first. Today while riding I took Hawk with me. I was vigilant, watchful, and ready to swoop or flee. I returned home safe.

May the Hawk be with you.

Very Fine

We seem to have a pattern going here.

The weather is beautiful for the workweek and then comes the weekend.

And then comes the rain.

And the chilly temperatures.

But, it is Spring. It is blossoms on the car windows not snowflakes.

And the iris are blooming.

Yes, the streets are all wet and there is unseasonable chill in the air, but the spirit is fine, very fine.
