Number Three: One baby bird flying into a window is sad. Two baby brother birds fatally colliding with a window together is truly a tragedy. I will miss these lovely Goldfinches in my garden.
In the big scheme of things, these "tragedies" are minor incidents in a happy, healthy life. Still, they should not go unmarked, noticed for their passing. Life is a journey of twisted turnings, leading to the molding of character and stamina. In the end, I will want to have seen it all, and cherished the joy and sadness of every moment.
What about you? Have you remarked on any small joys or sadness recently?
