leaves wings and other such things


instinct & practice, nurturing & guidance, dependance & trust.

a bald eagle chick practices flapping its wings in the nest atop a tall pine. next it tries beating its wings into the wind & taking short hops above the nest. one day, a big gust of wind catches the bird’s open wings & whisks it away. the parents follow the young eagle on its first flight.
