The other morning while I sat on the front porch drinking coffee and giving my plants a little bit of water, I watched an industrious pair of robins building a nest.
I was completely unaware what excellent gatherers they are. They can hold quite a load of building materials in their beaks at one time.
I also observed them in the tree searching for twigs that broke off easily to use in their nests.
Fascinating, the things you can see when you are just sitting. Meditating.
When I finally came back inside Chris told me he just read that "the combination of intense concentration and relaxation may trigger the growth of new brain cells". So I poured another cup of coffee and went back outside.
To do some more intense concentrating... and practice my bird in flight photography skills.
