Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

A little crane conversation


Last week I ran up to the post office on my way out to Katie’s park. Katie was in the back seat. My camera was on the passenger seat. I dropped off the letters that needed to be mailed and was headed to Katie’s park when I noticed these two having an intense conversation.

Or something.

“I’m tired of discussing it.”
“We haven’t solved anything yet.”
“But I don’t WANT to talk about it anymore!”
“We should be able to talk about it like rational adults.”
But I don’t WANT to!”
“I swear, you never let anything just go!”
“OMG, you are just too much!”

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. haha! I love this! Stomping feet to make a point…keep on, girl. Keep on.


  2. OMG – you made me laugh this morning. Thank you! 🙂


  3. Reminds me of a conversation I was having with my wife last night during the World Series game…. Brought back memories of watching baseball with my dad, or any sport with him for that matter. Sometimes watching and listening is the way to go…. Patience is key in life. Peace.


  4. Oh, I love this! It does make me feel like I’m watching our government in action, however. Or should that be in inaction?


  5. Sounds just like us humans!


  6. What an exchange! How lucky you were to come upon it.


  7. Nice photos. Great to catch the cranes for several shots. Maybe that is a mating dance?


  8. Excellent!
    I didn’t know that you’re fluent in Sandhill Crane. Your skills always amaze me!


  9. Sounds just like something these two might be saying! Talk about being in the right place at the right time — well done, Dawn!


  10. Wonderful interpretation of the crane’s conversation. Loved it


  11. LOL – that’s so fun. They are odd birds to watch. Your narration of their encounter added to the entertainment!


  12. Ha! You have a great sense of humor and insight into birds.


  13. Wow, you were there at the right time, to record this intense interaction, haha! Sorry I have been AWOL last few months but it had to do with a blog change and computer change at the same time (going from Apple to Windows). Now am slowly looking up my friends ! Am leaving my permalink, oh and I also changed my username – not Jesh anymore but Emille:) Have a great week!



  14. Your picture/caption combinations made me smile. Perhaps it’s a courtship ritual at the wrong time of the year? I often see a solitary heron but never a pair walking like this.
