‘Ive just returned from a brisk little walk in my neighborhood, where I happened to notice two rather plain (but bright-eyed) grey doves on the tarmac, nodding their little heads at each other & indicating towards the unexpected puddle of water in  front of them…….
I could not help but think how short their life span was and yet, how they had managed to reach such maturity as far as their emotional intelligence was concerned.
They were planning a morning dip into a delightful liquid pool that reflected the blue sky and a few drifting clouds……. whilst elsewhere, in a parallel universe, arrogant, ‘intelligent’ humans, where planning, plotting and scheming to wipe out or maim their own kind, without ever having had the opportunity to celebrate or share with each other, the gifts of nature.
