I had to laugh at your first point about things being right in front of us–but we can’t or don’t see them…
My Daddy (who had lots of good sayings) used to say when I was looking for something right under my nose: “It that had have been a snake, it would have bitten you.”
Surely the Wood Storks do know where to nest—even if we don’t know where they should be!!!!! ha
Have a great holiday weekend.
