Sparrows are such curious creatures, dear one. Do you know why they are curious? Yes dear one, because they must search everywhere for food. This sometimes becomes a bit of a problem for them. Why you ask. Well I’ll tell you. In the warm months food is a plenty. They have budding flowers and trees to fill their little bellies.
Then when winter comes, the weather gets cold outside and they find it harder get food. This is what makes them curious, dear one. Often they rely on the kindness of humans to give stale bread, rice or if they’re luck bird seeds. When these little fellows find a place that is rich in food they nest in the neighboring trees and eaves of surrounding houses. Occasionally one may get stuck inside a house and have a difficult time finding its way out. But somehow they make it.
We humans aren’t very different from the little sparrows. I’ll tell you why dear ones. When it’s time of plenty we are quite content and stay close to home. Playing and setting out our homes. We are happy to set up our homes where it is easy to provide for our families. But when we find the resources warring thin we venture out seeking a place where work, housing and food is a plenty. Oh like the little sparrows we may find ourselves visiting the old nest for old-time sakes. But we must go where it’s easy to provide for our family.
I tried, very poorly I add, to use the voice of my good friend Carolyn Page of ABC of Spirit Talk. Visit Carolyn you won’t be disappointed. She has distinct voice when writing about animals and their nature and how they are associated with us humans. Carolyn and I have been friends for two years since we both started blogging. Her stories are always entertaining. She records herself reading her essays and you can read along. Do this and you will hear her voice whenever you read her work. She has such a sweet, gentle and smoothing voice.
