Let My Spirit Carry Me

Had life's most amazing experience today. No exaggeration.

K. and I were swimming across the lake.

"Look," she said, pointing. "An eagle."

I spun around and watched as a very large bald eagle glided across the lake, flew just a few feet over our heads, and then, just a couple of feet beyond us, dove and grabbed a fish right out of the lake.

The bird wheeled around, transferred the fish from his feet to his mouth, and soared back across the lake and into a high branch of a douglas fir at the edge of the lake.

And that's what happens when you're swimming, and not lying on the couch playing solitaire.

Here's the video I could have taken: Fly Like an Eagle.
