She was seeking or searching or looking for something.
I watched as she turned her head back...and then forwards. And then up...and then down. I watched her outstretch her wings as if she was reaching.
And then - after all that movement and motion - she simply curled in on herself. Releasing. Allowing her head to fall below her heart.
She stopped. She stared. She got quiet. She listened.
All she'd been seeking - she found right there.

I'll be away from my computer for the next few days. I'll look forward - as always - to returning and beginning again.
See you'all next week.
