One of my favourites

Blackbird on a coffee cup

We're still dealing with a family member in hospital.  Today
was a bit cheerier, and when I got home in the evening
I thought I'd share this painting today.  I'm reading a novel
about a girl who loves the Beatles, and the song Blackbird
came to mind.

I like the last line, which seems hopeful today:
"You were only waiting for the moment to arise."

The bird is meaningful to me because one of the first signs
of spring in our city is the chorus of Red-winged Blackbirds
in our local beautiful park.  That sound makes us so happy.

Have a loving your life day.
