Straighten up and fly right

Sometimes you get the chance to see something miraculous in the everyday. You might not even think it's that miraculous at the time, but then as time passes, it's the most beautiful part of your day.

I feel this way when I drive on the Skyway bridge into Burlington. I like to look up at the bridge beams overhead and there is something about it that always makes me smile.

I also feel this way when I catch a glimpse of a flock of birds flying in sync - it's phenomenal. I've not been able to see something as cool as the birds in this clip, but even to see them in a small flock is pretty cool.

Part of me wonders if this is how it goes down:

"Ok, listen up guys, this is what we're gonna do. We're gonna fly straight up, do a loop-de-loop, then a sharp dart to the left, then another loop, then another then land over there on that telephone wire. You got it? Keep it together this time! People will love it. Ok, here we go...."

  1. I love seeing birds do this. I also saw a nature show about sardines and they kind of do it too. Is there one in charge making the call?
