4th February - and the waiting is so long....

It's been ages since we saw Pot Plant Owl and her family, and I'm starting to get withdrawal symptoms. We've seen Pappa once and heard him more regularly - hooting far in the distance. This is the same pattern that we've witnessed for the past three years, but it never makes it any easier to sit back and wait.

We're still doing talks about 'our' owls, which is keeping me going. And then there's the school books project which I need to sink my teeth into for 2011.

And then there's the Save-the-Wetland petition. Please don't forget about that - we are just short of 3 000 signatures, but we have done so well. Thanks to everyone that has signed up and commented. Here is the link again:

I'm thrilled to report that the wetland under the development threat, is looking green and lush again - thanks to unseasonally heavy rains for a few months now. When I hear people around me complain, I remind myself that the rains are assisting with the regeneration of the wetland, This, in turn, will keep the owls' territory and we won't see 'our' owls lose their habitat. The rain is a lot to be thankful for.

I'm reminded each day of the importance of finding ones own passion in Life - that one thing that puts a smile on your face and in your heart, on even the most difficult of days. I'm lucky to have found mine - what about you?
