patience and calm can be good attributes, waiting for the right moment to seize. this great blue heron was so still and patient, ready to stand for a long period, waiting for the perfect opportunity to reach and snap up a little fish. he was also standing on a floating bed of kelp, seemingly quite stable on an unstable surface, floating at least 20 ft from the ocean floor. finding a moment of zen despite his precarious position, able to focus on his goal even when he didn't quite know when he would achieve it.
perhaps i could learn a bit from mr. heron.
