Fig Tree and Hummingbird

Hummingbird on Fig Tree

On this morning of Jan. 17th, it is the 20th anniversary of the terrible Northridge Earthquake.
There is a terrible fire taking homes, 1,700 acres, and the sunrise color is strangely red from the fire.
Today is my husband's, z'l, yahrzeit, Jan. 17,  17 Tevet.  He died 8 years ago.
It is a morning filled with darkness.
I heard the Hummingbird and looked up to the top of the Fig tree, 
this week of Tu B'Shvat, 
and saw the tiny bird, and it made me smile.
Another Hummingbird joined the first for a fleeting moment.
There was light.
