The occasional, often ill-considered thoughts of a Roman Catholic permanent deacon who is ever grateful to God for his existence. Despite the strangeness we encounter in this life, all the suffering we witness and endure, being is good, so good I am sometimes unable to contain my joy. Deo gratias!

The thoughts expressed here are my personal thoughts and sometimes reflect my political views. As a private citizen I have every right to express these views.

Osprey and Prey

Our newest neighbor returns daily to a perch high in the same tree immediately next door to our home. It's an osprey and a beautiful one. Yesterday afternoon I caught him just as he was taking flight with a fish in his talons. And today I spotted him again and managed to take a few photos before he left. I expect he'll return soon, since he seems to use this particular tree as his resting spot before and after fishing.

What magnificent birds!
