They have Ravens in Russia

I remembered this thismorning as I wrote an email to a friend who touched me in telling me that she had a dream she was in court with me holding my hand.  I told her I'd imagine all of you there with me.  It will help I'm sure. 
Yesterday as I said was emotional and stressful.  This is something that in retrospect helps to make me smile at the very least... if not find a moment of calm.  Corbin was gettig tired and climbed onto the swing with the other children to be pushed by one baba.  She chattered away with them about things - the sun is in the sky, the moon is in the sky, the birds are in the sky, the big bird says... the little bird says.... the owl says.... and then one of the girls pointed at a bird circling over head and asked what he says... Baba looked up and responded, "CAAAA! CAAAA! CAAAA!" I looked up to see a big black Russian Raven flying around over the playground.  I managed to get my camera out and take a picture.  this camera is finicky and slow - it doesn't just snap when you push the button so I'm not sure how I managed to get the Raven in flight... but I did... and then he left - flew away. 
I think that I needed that Raven yesterday... I just needed to feel a little peace and hope and calm. 
Ravens are the see'er between two worlds... Hi Scott... This is my Corbin...
