Herons, I reckon, are great ponderers! I have no massive catalouge of observation to back up this bold statement, but they do seem to hang around waiting a lot of the time! Perhaps they are gaining backgound for their next novel?! Now you are being stupid, Barrie!!!!
I would say from experience, that pondering is good, generally! I do tend to do a lot of it, as Helen would atest. It may not produce momentous insights, but it takes me on some interesting journeys!
My pondering leads me into diverse places. Where we are staying at the moment, has roads which head towards the sea, but which end in a cliff, dropping into the North Sea!
All I hear is the word TRUST…….and Jesus’ words….’I am the Way…’
