Cardinals

My grandma's favorite birds were cardinals. She loved them. I am not sure if there are more cardinals here or if I just notice them more, but I would say that most of the times when I go walking or lately even riding my bike I see cardinals. Here is one that I saw when I was walking the trail to the Crystal Bridges overlook.


One day one seriously followed me. This was the spring/summer I was coming out of my depression. I was feeling kind of low and, no kidding, this little guy flitted around the 5.5 trail around Lake Fayetteville, following me and hopping from tree to tree. It was a powerful reminder that I am not alone.

I love it when I see the cardinals. They remind me of Mema. I loved her, and I miss her. Here she is, teaching me to ride my first bike in her driveway.
