Sometimes this Bird is prone to Moody flights that find her lost in misty morning skies. My mind wandered to the notion of spirits when taking this photo, so I'll let others' words guide this day's Mood of restless spirits. (As a Jaunty side-note, this Bird is happy to report that the Project 365/Picture a Day is still going strong -- this one was one of my favorites taken in the middle of Westlake Center in Downtown Seattle)

The lawn
Is pressed by unseen feet, and ghosts return
Gently at twilight, gently go at dawn,
The sad intangible who grieve and yearn...
T.S. Eliot, To Walter de la Mare

For who can wonder that man should feel a vague belief in tales of disembodied spirits wandering through those places which they once dearly affected, when he himself, scarcely less separated from his old world than they, is for ever lingering upon past emotions and bygone times, and hovering, the ghost of his former self, about the places and people that warmed his heart of old?
Charles Dickens, Master Humphrey's Clock
