Twitter.

No, not THAT Twitter®, but instead the twitter of songbirds who have seemingly come out of hiding to serenade me as I strolled along during a two-mile walk on this peaceful Good Friday morning.  Due to the holiday, there were not many people out and about and the route was serene and quiet but for the “tweets” and “twittering” of birds from their perches in still-bare trees.  What a treat for the ears of this Winter-weary soul!  The weather was delightful this morning.  Gone were the blustery winds and stinging cold I encountered earlier this week.  Query:  could Spring have finally arrived?  “No” says the robin who responds to the question in my unspoken thought.  He is wearing his perpetual scowl and hopping to and fro, trying to drill his bright-yellow beak into a still-frozen front lawn in a feeble attempt to find worms .  I told Mr. Robin it was an admirable effort but to try again in a few weeks.

About lindasschaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, and this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for over three decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, although I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too.
