Pocket of joy: Birds at the feeder

I love the way the birds sit in the tree or on the post and wait their turn at the feeder.

I love the term “pocket of joy.” I first heard it on a Netflix reality show when one of the main starsspeaking of his difficult growing-up years, also spoke of the pockets of joy that sustained him through those difficult times.

    Lovely images, Deb. I am glad you have moments like these to lift your spirits.

    If you don’t mind me asking, how is Ben doing?


    1. Thank you. Ben is doing fine. He and his parents are quarantining, of course, but apart from some fatigue he is feeling fine. He never did get really sick which is what had us worried. Covid has caused vascular problems in some children, and in light of the earlier vascular issues in his brain, we were very concerned. So all is well. Thank you for asked about him.

    Nice shots of those dainty birds. How are you and Ben Deb?


    1. Thank you, Arlene. Ben is doing okay. He has had some fatigue but otherwise has not become very ill. We were concerned in light of his previous health issues, but he’s doing fine. I don’t know when he will be able to return to school (his school does have in-person classes). Thank you for asking about him. I am staying at home trying to avoid the virus and trying to adjust to living alone.
