Birds of a feather usually flock together, but this solitary fellow was off by himself gazing out at the water.
I got to thinking about how I love to sit by the ocean and reflect on my life: past, present and future. Away from other people and the hustle bustle of daily living. The only conversation I engage in is with myself. My feet buried in the warm sand and feeling the cool sea breezes against my face.
Since we have much in common with animals, I wondered if he was doing and feeling the same things.
Or, if he was merely contemplating which direction to fly in order to make a tasty catch for dinner.
Which, if I sit on the beach long enough, I do, too. Yes, we are alike.
