Today was a day like any other, I was cooking curry in the kitchen. Standing at the sink I looked into the trees in our backyard as we are high up at the rear of the house.
Well dreaming about nothing in particular as I washed the potatoes, a most beautiful black and white feather slowly danced past the window. It didn't float or head to the ground it just twisted and turned sideways past the glass!
I dashed outside down the stairs to see where it landed but alas it was nowhere to be found. Not that I had expected to see it - it was such a dreamlike thing to happen it seemed perfectly normal that it would just vanish without a trace.
About 3 hours later, just before the light entirely faded for the day I happened to glance out the window from another room and low and behold there it was resting on top of the water tank!
So often you find a feather on the ground perhaps stuck on a bush but so much rarer to see one float past your line of vision.
These special little signs of the world around us are very precious, more so for their almost magical beauty as they touch our lives.
Hoping a little magic dances into your life this week
