Ignorance not bliss

Yesterday I was hiking in a riverbed, my dog and I when suddenly a little red bird flew from the skeleton of a burned tree. It landed not far from us and watched us watch it. It was an incredible little bird, completely red except for its brown wings, the size of a sparrow and so beautiful. And I wanted so much to know what this little bird was.
I've always been on the cusp of knowledge. I've always almost known things.
It's a quandrous place to be, a brittle branch, a place just out of the reach of personal comfort.

"On the cusp of knowledge." What a great phrase. I live there most days it seems. Loved the artwork as well.

Smartz, it's like the brain ceiling. Maybe we'll never break through.

Openpalm, thank you. I'm glad you enjoy it. And as a fellow blogger you know how much we love comments!
