I  was out walking today, and noticed a kestrel hanging, totally stationary in the air, apparently expending no effort at all.  It was a magnificent sight.  It got me thinking about that apparent lack of effort.  I suspect that it took not only consummate skill, but a great deal of work to create this display of ‘doing nothing’. 

We all know people who are so good at what they do it seems to be effortless and we tend to take them for granted as a result.  I’m married to someone like this.  Today might be a good day to show your appreciation for their (apparently) effortless gifts!
