The World from the Eyes of a Vizsla

The Phoenix has Arrived on Cape Haze!

My Phenomenal Phoenix.  I truly am fortunate to have spotted and captured a picture of this creature.   It does not live on fruit or flowers, but on frankincense and odoriferous gums. ( and boy do we have odoriferous gums on this island) When it has lived five hundred years, it builds itself a nest in the branches of an oak, or on the top of a palm tree. In this it collects cinnamon, and spikenard, and myrrh, and of these materials builds a pile on which it deposits itself, and dying, breathes out its last breath amidst odors. (So Saaaddd)  From this beautiful bird, a young Phoenix issues forth, destined to live as long a life as from which it has come forth from. When baby Phoenix has grown up and gained sufficient strength, it lifts its nest from the tree (its own cradle and its parent’s sepulchre), and carries it to the city of Heliopolis in Egypt, and deposits it in the temple of the Sun.  

Wow, Egypt is a long way to travel from here…but be on the watch, perhaps lay cinnamon and myrrh out for it.  I Sir Winston, have seen the Phoenix…
