Birds vs. Words

Most of us knows someone who is larger than life itself; my buddy Igal only does things grandly. Whether its his 260+ lb dogs, which can handily sport saddles, lunches that never lack just one more course, or seemingly more children than fingers. He is also one of those people that has an old world expression for every life experience, that would have your granny nodding in agreement.

When I began blogging, he took me aside and asked 'why is a bird different than a word'? Before I could stumble out an answer he lowered his booming voice and responded to his own query 'when a bird is released, you know where it goes, but words, once released, have no master and travel so far, you can never track it'.

I am thankful to have many friends and family who, in many quiet ways, share their thoughts and friendship.

Have a great Thanksgiving,

Charlie
