hanging from it.
Finches follow me every morning, and say "Don't forget our seeds".
A wonderful egg has a chick hatching out of it.
Walking on our hill, we are followed by several hummingbirds.
Sitting on our land, a rabbit comes for the beans in front of us. He looks up as if he
knows: "Oh, they will do me no harm".

Sitting on the porch, we relax and enjoy the view and the ambience.

Everywhere wonderful things happen, so you can say
"I am glad to be on earth".
