MALLARD DUCKLING 1 – New life and simple joys to behold. It’s a rich life.

I was once like that
But still cute
My studio is right on the river’s edge in Warkworth and it is the habitat of much wildlife.
This means I get to see the playgrounds visual stimuli, hear sounds, eating and mating habits of many species of Flora and Fauna. Sparrows, Ducks, Geese, Heron, Fantails, Kingfishers, Morepork, Tui, Song Thrush, Silver Eyes. Doves, Blackbirds, Mullet, White Bait. Eels, Wood Pigeon, Kaka, Seagulls, Blackjacked Gulls, Chaffinch, Eastern Rosella, Myna, Skylark. Tuatara, Skink, Shags, Rats, Cats, Dogs and many homo sapiens of all races and breeds. I marvel at all this under the sun or in the rain.
This small creature brings so much joy and pleasure. In the quietness of observation, I find myself a wealthy person making time to stop and be grateful. It is rich to have nothing but gratitude.
I have just realized in typing this (likewise with “Mallard Ducklings 2”) how abundant this life is in all its fullness. If I am too busy to see this then perhaps I am too busy in wrong pursuits.
My busyness is rooted in fear of having too little income to supply my needs. I am living beyond my means and coveting things I cannot afford as my youth passes into wrinkles. Because I have brought pressure upon myself from unwise choices the stress of owing others money has had me chasing my tail and the vanity of toys I don’t really need. De-stressing, doing without and being thankful for the little things gives me a healthier lifestyle. Now I have more time for others, without fear of going without. I have more time to see and I get to keep my youth in mind.
Even talking with the animals I have noted a new respect for this planet, for God who made it, and for what He has told us about its future.
I rest in this knowledge. Despite our collective mismanagement of our planet, it is not going to end in the way the visions of false prophets predict. Short-sighted prophets who only see the natural without heavens council will miss the mark.
Hard times are encroaching. After the cancer of evil is purged, new growth, new life, new vision and a healthy planet will emerge. Read the Constitution and insights recorded from heaven. You will get the picture if you ask the manufacturer for the revelations He has already revealed.
This little duckling reflects the glory of our manufacture, the wonders of which I am now unashamed to honor Him in all of my artistic endeavors.
