A living bird in the bush versus a dead one in the hunter’s hand, that is the difference between a living thing and our knowledge of it. Language is a binding of life.
Life has so much more than humans know. We miss sights and sounds all the time. Think of how much goes on unnoticed by humans. For every bird in the hand there are two in the bush.
I created a stand-alone seasonal comic, Away in a Manger, based on a story by Marlene Leeper, told to her by her friend, Dr. Reg Reed. The story appeared in Stuart McLean’s Time Now for the Vinyl Cafe. Stuart McLean was a Canadian Christmas icon till he passed away in February of 2017.
