  1. Gasp! So tiny! But we get to examine them in such big detail. They’re so beautiful.

    I couldn’t believe it when I read the news about that memoirist. The audacity of the lie! Telling people you were raised by wolves?!

    • How is it that her story didn’t ring false to her ghost-writer and/or her publisher? I don’t get it.

      I’m so glad we have beauty in our world, and that we are blessed with eyes that see it.

  2. Ahhh, their beaks!! Melodye, I think you’re a self-assigned aunt or allomother! ๐Ÿ™‚

    And for the author. To tell such an outrageous tale – I don’t think she even knows truth from fiction, and believes it as she goes along and changes the story, that becomes her new story/life. Not to hold her accountable, but for the ghost writer and the publisher not to research this really strange story is negligent in my opinion. I think it would have prevented more pain for Holocaust survivors and their families. Ai.

  3. Oh, these little birds are so amazing. Such wonder in this world…and I thank you for sharing it with us.

    Hard to imagine making up such stories, but it does seem like this author is a troubled soul.

    Have you read Natalie Goldberg’s Old Friend from Far Away, The Practice of Writing Memoir? I just got it out from the library and it makes me think of you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I haven’t seen their mama much lately — she must be really busy gathering food for her fast-growing chicks.

      I believe everyone carries within themselves stories so remarkable that it’s unnecessary to embellish.

      Artistq sent me the CD version of that book — it’s fabulous! (Thanks for thinking of me…I’m really touched.)
