All I know is something like a bird within her sang, All I know she sang a little while and then flew on, Tell me all that you know, I'll show you snow and rain. ---Hunter and Garcia
On Christmas Eve 2020, I looked out my window and saw a pair of lime-green African parrots clinging to the branches ofa tree in our backyard. Suddenly there were heavy gusts of wind and hard rains. About ten minutes later, the rains stopped; the parrots shook out their feathers; and then they flew offtogether.
African parrots are almost always seen in pairs. It is believed that these lovebirds cannot survive without their mates for very long. After a stressful period, they feed one another to re-establish their bond. This series is dedicated to all those lovebirds out there---even the worst storms eventually do pass.
