491 Wonderful & Worrying

I was out for my afternoon walk. In a busy part of town near Aldi’s I was walking along and I saw this little beauty ahead of me. Of course, I expected it to fly away as I got nearer. It didn’t.

As I came to a stop and just stood there, it was quite happy running around, trying things to see if it was edible, and having a drink. It was not in the least bit bothered by me, I think I could have picked it up, it was within inches (i.e. <6) of me. It wasn’t bothered by other people }(at least two) that walked past. I don’t think they even noticed it.

That was the wonderful thing, that it could do what it was doing without any fear of being attacked. It is so nice to see wild animals not being afraid of us. I have lost count of the number of times I have said that, and mean it.

The worrying thing is that where it had decided to settle was a busy place, and I was really surprised that the people who walked past did not stop and consider the wonder of an unworried wild animal in our midst, that was just doing what it was supposed to do. I found that surprising, and distressing, I don’t know of course whether they just did not see what I saw, thought that what I was seeing wasn’t wonderful or they just did not care. I really hope it wasn’t the last two.

At one point, the bird was in the road, and it was then it was that I thought this is not a safe area, and that it shouldn’t be doing it here, and that I wished that people cared as much as I did, and that it would go somewhere safe.

Am I mad to worry about such things?

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
