Delighted that my dog has entered some kind of remission. One week after believing it was time for that “family meeting,” he is well enough to eat and walk again.
He runs like a, somewhat lame, puppy after his bath- so it’s all good for now.
I savour every minute with Tobey, knowing he has lived
and is living
and loved life.
And so I walk with him when he can. Like yesterday morning at 6:30 AM. Under blossomed trees at Comox and Chilco.
Tobey and I were enveloped in the whooop whooop whooop sound of pigeons flying and landing on balconies.
What could I learn by listening?
The pigeon is a determined creature. It will stay in an area as long as there is food, despite attempts by humans or other birds to chase it away. The pigeon sighting can encourage you to be stubborn and hang in there, regardless of what challenges are thrown in your path.
The pigeon also has strong connections to house and home. If a pigeon appears to you, take a look at your relationship with your home. What does it represent to you? What would you like it to be for you? If these things don’t match up, you know you have work to do. The pigeon is safest in a flock. Don’t discount the strength and support found in a community. Furthermore, remember the importance of communication within that community; don’t assume people know things just because you do. Make sure everyone is in the loop regarding important information.

I like paying attention to those magical moments, standing rooted in my new neighborhood– full of gratitude for the struggles and gifts that brought me to this place.
Birds hold so much meaning to me. And they always feel like messengers, telling me to pay strict attention.
