Brunch with the Birds- Glass Gem Corn

" Hold fast to your dreams, for if dreams die, 
life is  a broken-winged bird that cannot fly." 
~ Langston Hughes 
American Poet, 1902- 1967

The Westin La Paloma hostess graciously accommodated my desire  to share the magic of brunch without my lens intruding on the privacy of the other diners by opening the quiet side of the dining patio. 

The little birdies birds hover over left over crumbs on the tray drive staff batty - but really, don't you find their bold innocence charming?  

My waistline never missed the little bit of egg soaked English muffin set on the water feature's ledge.  

There is magic created whenever we commune with nature. Near our patio is a fountain. I feel inspired to set near it a platform where we might literally break bread with our feathered neighbors.

It is my prayer to make it to the top of the waiting list at Native Seeds SEARCH  for the beautiful Glass Gm corn. The un-retouched photo, borrowed from their web site  has created quite a waiting list ahead of me. 

Last week was my 37th Anniversary. I would like you to know something of him, for my life would not be all that is has been without Gerry's love, fidelity, sacrifice and companionship. But I don't want this story of a uniquely American man lost among other details. So if God and the computer are willing, I will post my homage to a very good man tomorrow. And if there is only one post of mine you ever read- let it be this next story. 

God bless you all for coming by.

  1. Your breakfasting bird photos are delightful! And that gem corn is amazing -- God makes beautiful things. Like 37 years with your dear husband. Congrats, my friend.

  2. Lydia,
    My mouth was watering looking at your brunch what looked like Eggs Benedict! My favorite! I have it every morning while on a cruise!

    Love the birdies and the glass cob of corn. Lovely!
    Look forward to your next writing about Ger!

    Hugs, Trisha

  3. Trisha- That photo captures the ultimate luxury of working God's kingdom into our lives.

  4. Oh....those little Birdies are so very dear....I agree---sharing a meal with them is a wonder!
    The Glass Gem Corn is Fantastic!
