When I first got clean I was living very close to some cranberry bogs. One of these days I decided to take a walk.
I was walking around one of the bogs when all of a sudden I thought I saw a pterodactyl dinosaur flying very low and about 10 feet away from me.
The wing span on this animal, the color, the massiveness of it was unbelievable to me!
Fresh out of rehab and being born again so to speak….you can imagine the surprise, the delight, and the terror all at once.
I got clean at the age of 35 and in all of those years I had never encountered a Great Blue Heron. Gods divine timing waited until I was about 2 months sober and I could REALLY appreciate this amazing bird.
Today I see them often and I still appreciate that moment when I was so new back into this world that I actually thought there was a dinosaur flying around my town.
