Prompt: “The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.”
J.M. Barrie, The Little White Bird


I've have a parrot that never learned to fly. It was used poorly by someone who teased it as a young bird. Also, young birds that are raised by parent birds have an example to follow. Parrots for the pet trade are often hatched in incubators and raised by humans. When I purchased this bird, it had been taught to bite. A parrot bite can be a very serious wound. I set out to teach it to fly. I was not successful. I know how to handle it and have owned it now for several years. It is a very wise and fun pet.

I like the prompt quote and recognize, that the part of a bird, that is often noticed is its' ability to fly. I have ridden in airplanes and jumped horses over 5-foot-high fences. I think jumping a horse over a high fence is more like a bird flying than riding in an airplane. It takes a faith in your four-footed partner to jump a fence.

I also like the fact that our Father in Heaven chose birds to herald the coming of morning with song. I'm more excited at dawn to hear many birds singing, than to notice their flight. In spring and summer, they sing more and louder. I listen for the sound to judge the day's weather pattern.

This is just a few thoughts relating to the prompt. I am always interacting with the outside world. That's who I am. We live in homes that keep us sheltered and safe from the outside world. Nevertheless, the real life is out there, trees, bushes, forests and parks, birds and other creatures. If you search maps, the outside world is bigger than the human inhabited part of the globe. Just thoughts.
