“I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.”
~Henry David Thoreau
I quite agree, Mr. Thoreau. Birds are the singular best spirit-improvers and awe-inspirers of just about anything I can think of. A world without them is one in which I would not care to dwell.
What about you?
