I like wild birds in my garden at home. They remind me that lots around our world will have little or no consequence to me but that I can act positively towards them. Using seeds, grains and peanuts and they can help my state of mind. Watching them at our bird feeder, bird table and bird bath relaxes me.
When I was at school I had to learn a Christmas Carol called “In the bleak midwinter….” and at the time I grumbled about it.
