|A few days ago I found this broken mockingbird egg|
on the ground near my little garden spot.
|I looked around trying to find where the nest was.|
|I didn't find the nest, but I found the parents.|
They didn't seem overly concerned about anything,
and were busily doing their daily grooming ritual.
|"Awhhhh! that feels good," she seemed to be|
saying as she scratched behind her ear.
|And as she looked down at me from her perch in my mulberry tree,|
I could imagine her thinking,
"Really? Do you find me that interesting?"
And the answer to that is,
"Yes, Mrs. Mockingbird. I do find you that interesting!"
King Solomon was a man who found nature interesting.
Considered to be the wisest man who ever lived,
he authored most of the book of Proverbs
and also the book of Ecclesiastes.
Sometimes I wonder if the way he became wise
was by learning from his many mistakes!
Maybe wisdom often comes with a price?
...A willingness to risk making a mistake,
but even more importantly,
a willing mind to learn from it?
What do you think?
