April 9th

ENVY - is the desire for others' traits,
status, abilities, or situation.
Ok so this photo might not be of the prettiest baby in the world.
but
when he grows up he will be able to fly.
I do envy a birds ability to fly and see the world from a different
perspective.
Having said that there are still those in the world like my friend
here
who sometimes try to fly too LOL
********
Birds have wings; they're free;
they can fly where they want when they want.
They have the kind of mobility many people envy.

Brilliant and I love your pics! Bird might not be pretty but he has other things going for him, we should think like that!

I LOVE the picture of your friend. It's so vivid, almost as if you can feel the exhilaration that rises when you stand at the top of a cliff and see the big wide world. In fact I had that little heart flutter when I saw the photo. Fantastic stuff. :)

I love your photos and the journaling that accompanies them. My husband always says that he thinks he must have been a bird in a previous existence because when he is up high on a mountain top looking out, he has an incredible desire to flap his arms like wings and fly.

Hi Gemma
The bird is a baby 'Red Footed Booby'. I took the photo in the Galapagos islands (how lucky am I) it just sat there and stared at me.

great journalling - I would love to be able to fly too - I reckon hang gliding would be the best way to feel that - fancy trying it?!
