Every bird that has been is entirely one

07/03/2011

Osprey Chick (2) hanging out after a short flight from the nest. He sat there for a couple of hours. What a privilege to share space with this creature.

 

Original

 

“I, certainly, do not know all that comes to us at times. A bird is a bird as long as it is there. Then it is a miracle our crumbs and sunflower seeds caught and let go. Is there a book to look through for the identity of a miracle? No bird that is there is miracle enough. Every bird that has been is entirely one. And if some miracles are rarer than others, every incredible bird has crumbs and seeds in common with every other. Let there be bread and seeds in time: all else will follow.”
