"....My soul has grown deep like the rivers..."
As Langston Hughes paints the picture in "The Negro Speaks of Rivers" and Joni Mitchell lyrically sings about in "River", a River can bring so much promise, feeling, and possibility. Yesterday in Thatcher Woods, Cook County Forest Preserves we saw a Bald Eagle enjoyed a rabbit feast high up in the trees next to River Road. She was massive and gorgeous. What a gift I have never seen before here in this place and so close. Let me know if you want to know approximately where I saw her. Why do I think it was a female? Bald Eagle females are Bigger than their male counterparts.
