Almost Spring

by - 15.3.11

A bird does not sing because it has an answer.
It sings because it has a song.
Chinese Proverb

The bird sings because it should and can. The kids laugh because they are happy. Things happen whether we like it or not....we do not have the answer to everything....yet life goes on. Our song, our journey goes on despite the obstacles as the bird sings through the changing weather.

How do you view this quote? Would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks.

Photo taken on March 8 by the Danube River. - My kids were feeding the ducks but albatross kept diving in to take the food.
