I met Blue on the Oregon coast.  He ruffled and stretched his wings.  Plunged his bill in the water for food.  Moved with Tai Chi deliberation.

I followed Blue around like the paparazzi.  When Blue caught me filming, he did not fly away.

I took hundreds of snaps.   As if I could capture his bird-soul!

I, his pupil, still struggle to learn stillness.
