Solo Act.

This is the loneliest duckling.

 

Kristin and I were walking in the Rhodo Gardens and we saw this pond full of ducks and geese, and this one lonely fellow, ugly at a glance, with a soul meant for loving. He called out for compassion, and I called back, and we sang to each other across the wind, until Kristin told me that maybe I was making him feel more lonely each moment that he dared to dream he had a mate somewhere just beyond his sight.

 

He is adorable and I love him a little.
