Morning Lines #18- Elevate the Everyday

  The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life and elevating them to an art." -William Morris

    Some mornings there is a riot of sound and color right out my front door. I was party to a bitter feud between a Robin and this Black-Headed Grosbeak. The Robin pinned the Grosbeak on my porch and there he sat on my bicycle handle bars for one-half hour while the Robin screeched at him. He tried to get away only to be cornered again.
