Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Make your peace with that and all will be well. – Jack Kornfield
Sometimes the way of nature is hard to witness. I usually venture into the wild for a chance to spot a raptor, but I happened upon this one about a block from my house. Not a pretty sight, yet stunning, in how quick and efficient Merlins are with their prey. It’s part of an ancient cycle and bearing witness is how we honor life.
Rest in peace, my little house sparrow.
