Another moment in my ongoing vibe with St. Francis of Assisi. Yesterday afternoon I went to the waterfront with a new book that my friend Diane had sent me — The Lessons of St. Francis by John Michael Talbot with Steve Rabey. There was a mellow breeze and I found a nice bench and settled in to read.

About 10 minutes into it, I heard birds tweeting and then swarming in. The ground in front of me was covered with them. I had no food, so I don’t know what attracted them, but they made their presence known for about five minutes and then flew away.

All was quiet again.
