By Ted Grussing
… a single Crow, plying the unseen airways on a sunny Spring day with white puffy clouds forming the backdrop … it seems simple enough until you take a close look at the position of all the feathers, body positioning and the wings changing camber and the pin feathers of the wings making subtle changes to the airfoil for micro adjustments to the flight path. He is alive and living it as best he can … a single crow … with complexities that we cannot duplicate or imagine and he is in charge of providing all of his food, drink and healthcare … this single, solitary creature that most of us take for granted … in real life another of mysteries of life.
Today was an interesting day, two trips to Cottonwood and one to Flagstaff and it was a beautiful day for driving. One, got her outing late afternoon and I got an excellent dinner afterwards … three hot dogs, chili beans and a salad, yum!
It’s Wednesday … half way through the week and then the memorial Day Weekend is upon us. If you are coming up to Sedona, I would suggest taking 260 to Cottonwood from I-17 as you will miss the heavy traffic that is dominating SR179. It is equally beautiful approaching Sedona coming up SR 89A from Cottonwood as it is on SR 179. Give it a try.
Have a beautiful day and share your joy with others. Life is good and so are most people.
Give me to gladly go
My way and say
No word of mine own woe;
But let me smile each day
— Max Ehrmann
