May the owl give you wisdom
May the crow bring teachings from the invisible realm
May the jay show you strategies
May the hummingbird keep you alert and energized
May the eagle give you the strength to soar to great heights and fulfill your goals
May the hawk give you courage
May the chickadee give you laughter
and
May the dove bring you peace.

-- Ellie Schuster

Tabor; heh.

ScienceWoman; i agree, i am glad i shared this with my readers.

Gwyn; nice! that reminds me of the male cardinal i saw on new year's day. he was sitting under a shrub next to an apartment, eating. a small, brilliant gem hiding in the shadows.

Aethlos; thanks!

Way off topic, but everyone needs to apply the SECURITY PATCH featured in the green box if you are running ANY windows operating system (XP, ME, NT, 2000, 98, 95, 3.1). There is a huge vulnerability in the coding that lets you view pictures using windows. All web browsers and e-mail clients will at various times access this code to perform different imaging tasks. This is a BIG FAT SECURITY RISK. There is more info HERE.

PS. If the Hyperlink don't work, here are the URL's from above:

This will disable the Microsoft Picture Viewer feature, but there is a safer alternative here:
