I woke up this morning later after being up until well after 3 a.m. Just hanging out, dancing, being me. (It felt good and I didn’t feel like I had to do what anybody else wanted.)
I opened up my balcony door and there was a ginormous great blue heron sitting on the peak of the roof of the apartment beside mine. It was *huge*. I snapped a couple of pictures and then it flew away. My inner monologue – like JD from Scrubs – imagined a wind tunnel in its wake but of course that was an amusing exaggeration.
I looked up the symbolism of the bird from the curiosity standpoint and found the following:
Keywords: Peace, Ability to Stand Alone, Uniqueness, Dignity, Call to Balance, Fluidity, Connection to the Blue Road, Independence, Boundaries, Self Esteem

The experience was interesting to me and whether or not this massive bird was trying to deliver a message to me [I giggle a little here as my rational brain dominates] the associated keywords are salient reminders. It was interesting to look at the keywords and note that words like unique and independent are qualities that I consider to be descriptive of my individual personality outside of my marriage.
