Loving Delivery

I was on my way out of the harbour yesterday evening when I saw a single tern atop this mooring buoy. As I was taking its picture, the second tern arrived, fluttered without really landing just long enough to deliver a morsel of fish to the beak of the other, and then departed. To have been lucky enough in my timing to be there for this little act of avian loving kindness, well, it made my day. I rowed on out for a meditative lap around the channel marker as the light waned, but there was really no meditation happening. My mind was just full of bliss.
