i remember when elana commented years ago, the first i'd heard of such a thing, that blue jays are hateful birds, nasty. it really struck me, not having thought of bird types and personalities in such a way. since then others have confirmed that the species is known for its "annoying" behaviors, particularly as we watch jays with other birds.
and here i see one perch and wiggle, its flesh roil a bit, and i'm awash with there is a beautiful one of god's creatures.
it may or may not be a blessing of any external source, but it's a blessing anyhow, to feel that kind of feeling, now and then.
