Peacock Alarm Clock

Every morning in the Dominican Republic, I awoke to the sound of the Peacock Call. High and mighty he called from my balcony…to his lady friends…

There is something about waking to the sound of a bird that puts a GIGANTIC smile on my face.


Down home friends and what they say...

Jennifer said:

Shawn, you definitely need to have a couple of these beauties on your farm! Glad you’re back safe, sound, and rested.

Pamela said:

WOW! That is awesome, Shawn!
You were so close to them. What a beautiful atmosphere you were part of.
Isn’t it a miracle that they appeared at just this time in your life? A divine graceful gift.
I always thought if I could be a bird, I would love to be a peacock.
I have many peacock items in my home - a print of 2 white peacocks framed, a fan of peacock feathers that I got at the Renaissance Festival, a bouquet of peacock feathers in a green vase.
Our local B & B is called The Peacock Inn - I stayed there one night partly because of the name.
Thank you, lovely Shawn, for sharing this music and dance of the peacock. Your creativity is astonishing!!
P.S. Oh - Alexandra Stoddard’s new book about mothers is on sale at SuperTarget for $15.39. I know you like her. It’s a good one!

Shawn…How lucky you were to wake up to that! Isn’t he/she magnificent! Because of TP and the sisterhood I am hooked on peacocks now! I hope you don’t mind I read what Pamela wrote earlier about Alexandra Stoddard..she’s a fav. of mine too. I didn’t know she had a new book out. I’m headed to Targay today!! Have a great day…xoxo Pam
