Robin Saga: Start to Finish

Robin saga ended too soon

We’re just a bit on the sad side today. The robin chicks are gone. It’s another empty nest and sort of the story of our yard over the last month or so, what with the loss of the house finch and cardinal chicks before this.

It’s a hard life for every creature. On the other hand, death in our own yard is always counterbalanced by the triumph of life elsewhere on earth.

That doesn’t make it any easier. I’m reminded though of a quote attributed to Sydney Harris:

“When I hear somebody sigh, ‘Life is hard,’ I am always tempted to ask, ‘Compared to what?’”

Sydney J. Harris

I’m pretty sure he never, ever actually asked that question.
