The Eagle Has Landed

Let Nature Inspire and Center You - Eagles return to Iowa - Easy Life Meal & Party PlanningDo you ever have one of those days where you wake up feeling like a slug? It is in the low 20's, the sky is hazy as if a snow storm is brewing somewhere out there, and everything is gray and white dotted with brown. There certainly wasn't any creative juices flowing. I felt burnt out by too much shopping, wrapping, company, family drama, sitting in front of the computer and the list goes on. It's only been winter for a few weeks and I can already feel the walls closing in on me.

I knew the only thing to get me out of this funk was to be one with nature. So I put on my heavy winter gear, grabbed my camera and went to find the Eagles that migrate to Iowa in December. South of downtown Des Moines and along the river they speckled the trees as far as the eye could see - hundreds.

It was an awesome sight to see and I clicked and clicked and watched until I could no longer feel my hands. So inspired by such beauty and majesty that all of my woes seemed insignificant.

My eye was caught by all the surrounding beauty. And at that moment I was completely at peace with my world and centered again.
