House Finch – Circles In Life

House Finch

Circles In Life There truly are circles in life. A point-in-case presented itself the other day from our front porch. This image of a male House Finch reincarnates numerous childhood memories. For instance, there were often large throngs of this striking songbird species that regularly showed up at our family’s vineyard when the fruit was ripening. I remember many morning awakenings accompanied by the tune of the finches’ ebullient song. The end of each bubbly rendition was closed by a long, slurred note. Today, whenever I hear that melody and protracted finishing inflection, I’m keenly reminded of those priceless earlier moments. Even though it’s decades later and many miles away, the memories circle back ~ Anecdote and House Finch capture, Circles In Life © Jerry L. Ferrara
