The cardinals come precisely at sunset for a last bite to eat before bedtime. They are also early risers--here at the first light of day, half an hour before sunrise.
Sunrise and bedtime--excellent times for meditation. I've been trying out a new meditation schedule:
5:15 a.m. half an hour by myself
6:00 a.m. 1 hour on Skype with 2 meditation friends
7:10 a.m. half an hour at our local meditation center on Zoom
8:00 a.m. 20 minutes with my neighbors on Zoom
I find this 1-2-3-4 schedule very helpful, like doing repetitions.
And i see the cardinals at first light.
