Spring cleaning

Last time we visited the swan pond, the swans had five cygnets with them and were being responsible parents, protecting their brood. This weekend, there was no sign of the cygnets and this parent was very busy preening, taking up some absurd positions in an effort to get her feathers all spruced up.
Those times when we are able to lay down the burdens we carry for a time give us the opportunity for some self care - a fruitful Lenten discipline.

Amen! And love the swan 'pose' - thought for a minute that she was actually intertwined with a fellow, then realized it was her own wing - ah, self love!
