Yesterday, I saw a bald eagle drifting over the forest preserve that shoulders up to our neighborhood. Even though they are supposed to favor these parts in the winter, I have never seen one in my neck of the woods. It made me feel giddy, like a child who has been given a lollipop, like the time I sighted a toucan flitting through the treetops while visiting friends in Brazil.
What makes you feel giddy?
