Robin's Nest, watercolour, ink & acrylic, 2015
A couple of years ago we were thrilled to discover a robin’s nest in the oak tree out front. We eagerly watched her three blue eggs hatch and grow into little fledglings. Then in 2015 another pair of robins built a nest outside of my mum’s living room window in town. They were quite the master nest builders, artfully weaving some ribbons of birch bark into it.
I love the Robert Service excerpt paired with this drawing with its message of being in the moment that so perfectly ties in with the popularity of mindfulness and meditation these days.
