I know it's totally silly, but I really watched these ducks-- floating this way and that, napping on the shore, taking off in flight-- and I saw a little bit of my suitcase heart in them. We shared a blissful morning of quiet contentment together along the shore of Lake Tekapo, those ducks & I. And I would like to think that when we parted that day, they over the mountains and I to the mountains, that we we were both off on an adventure to see distant places.
What do you think? Are ducks just ducks and birds just birds?
Or do they have suitcase hearts??
