Hummingbird

Do you believe in fairies?

Neither do I. But if I did, their earthly forms would be hummingbirds.

We have a hummingbird feeder on our back patio, under which I learned that cheeping sound is not an insect, it's the chirp of a hummingbird. Where I found that my hair must look like a flower or something, because they are always trying to land in it whether I'm wrenching on the weedeater, firing up the barbecue, or patching the dings in my surfboard.

Where I learned that the greatest pleasures in life come from the appreciation of the smallest things.
