When we first arrived at the lake we were able to watch the sandhill cranes for a little while before a singing duo made it very clear with their loud, trumpeting sound that an expectant crane was in the vicinity.  I was hoping the duo were singing tunes about life to the little chicks who had yet to arrive from some of the bands inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame over the weekend.  The other option was that the singing was actually a warning sign that our company was not welcome during this private moment and then I would have to feel bad about intruding.

When you see your ship go sailing

When you feel your heart is breaking

Hold on tight to your dream.

Electric Light Orchestra – Hold On Tight

Don’t stop believin’

Hold on to that feelin’

Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’

May God’s bless and keep you always

May your wishes all come true

May you always do for others

And let others do for you

May you build a ladder to the stars

And climb on every rung

May you stay

May you stay forever young

Joan Baez – Forever Young
