i wanted to paint a picture of a mama duck with 20 ducklings,
because they made me feel so squee!
but 20 – oh mama –
then a human came to help them across the road.
i can get overwhelmed in the story of life –
reality sometimes comes in for a landing
when i least expect it –
a young eagle
on my car
on the highway.
leaving me humbled,
filled with hope and tears.
