Feather Soft

I have always admired the grace of birds flying, especially birds of prey. They are so majestic as they catch the currents of the wind, letting themselves be held aloft on the fickle nature of the winds yet also being in complete control of exactly where they are going. There is a life lesson in there somewhere. These feathers happen to belong to a particularly beautiful red tailed hawk whose back was turned to me in the most perfect light of the day.
