An afternoon walk to clear the mind

At 4:00, my house was attacked by toddlers. I surveyed the situation. It was well outside of my control. The market broke me today and if I hung around the house, the toddlers were going to finish me off.

So, I fled to the woodlands in search of birds.

I walked around this pond that's not far from my house. Spring migration has begun and the early warbler migrants have arrived. After a short search, I was able to spot a few Palm Warblers springing out from the tops of trees, snagging insects. It was peaceful. I watched them for about 45 minutes.

During that time outside, listening to the water move and watching the birds I completely forgot about how much the market sucks.

So tomorrow, when I'm in the thick of it, hopefully this picture of a Palm Warbler will help me keep my head together.

If that doesn't work, there's always the pictures over at the Trading Goddess.

No doubt. You gotta get away from the screens sometimes and breathe some air. Better to share it with the birds.

Thanks for reading.
