I have captured this jay several times with my camera and noticed that she was missing her left eye. She always watches the sky and tilts her head upwards, probably because she only has one eye to scan for danger up above. It gives her the appearance of looking grateful, at least to me. I decided to do her portrait and give her back her left eye. She is an amazing little survivor. I imagine she is grateful to be alive after surviving whatever disaster in her life caused the loss of her eye.

A Sentient Being’s Prayer

I give thanks for the moments of my life,
The joy, pain, and reflective quiet times,
All make up who I am,
And I am grateful.
