Embrace Your Second Wind

"Most people never run far enough on their first wind 
to find out they've got a second."  
~ William James 



"Difficult things take a long time, impossible things a little longer." 
~ André A. Jackson

My hummingbirds are zooming around in full throttle here and already fattening up and training for their long upcoming journey. For this summer's hatchlings, it will be their maiden voyage and probably the most dangerous one ever. They've got a lot to learn and many hundreds of miles to maneuver and survive through until they come back to me next spring. You can see a couple of short recent videos on my facebook page here.

I love hummingbirds and they continue to fascinate and inspire me.
They are a strong symbol to me of enthusiastically accomplishing that which seems impossible.
