In the early morning, I like to sit down near the river while my horse grazes nearby. It’s generally a quiet peaceful way to start the day and I can watch the various birds as they enjoy the small river also. Downstream, in the high cliff banks, the feral pigeons have their roosts and morning and evenings they fly up to the pipeline where it crosses the river. From that position they can greet the sun in the morning, and say goodnight to it at the end of the day. Sages recommend people to take the time to greet the day and bring closure to it , if they seek wisdom.
There’s a man-made structure across the river, and it provides a perfect place for the birds to take their ablutions and have a drink. These two enjoyed it this morning although sometimes there’s quite a crowd jostling for space.
