Sometimes I catch myself thinking (dangerous I know!).
I was sitting by the river on my lunch break yesterday, trying to defrost from the arctic office air conditioning, when out the corner of my eye I caught site of two black swans waddling their way back into the water. They made me smile as they slowly walked along, stopping here and there for a bit of grass or a bug, and then sliding gracefully into the water, bobbing off into the distance.
Personally, I believe black swans are stunning birds. One of the things that make them so endearing to me is that they pair for life – a thing humans struggle to do in this day and age.
This was when I got to thinking, and I admit this was not the first time this thought had crossed my mind -What would the world be like if there were no longer any birds?
Think about it and let me know how you would feel.
