This summer I’ve been happy to see two hummingbirds around our yard.
I feel amazed each time I see them.
They are territorial.
The one that has been at this summer location for a time defends his territory.
When the second one comes over he gets chased away.
I wonder. The second probably gets some sips in at the feeder when first one is off
But when spotted, there is a chase and race that ensues.
The dances in life are there. The struggles are real.
Yet we can thrive.
PS: Below is a sketch from a trip to the beach in the evening.

“The Horse Gift“
Several artists in the Equine Art Guild were a part of this unique tribute to the horse. Click
on the image above to read all about it and the artists who participated in it’s creation, as
well as see where it will be coming to a location near you in the coming year!
Darla Dixon organized a group of artists who will create no-charge compassionate
portraits for the families who have lost a loved one in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation
Enduring Freedom. We are looking for artists to join our efforts, and also for non-artists
who will help spread the word about this free service and token of our gratitude to families
who have sacrificed so much.”
