100 Words: Birds

January 23, 2008

I’ve never really been a connoisseur of birds. Not that they all look the same to me, but I’ve never cared enough to learn too much. I love hearing their calls rebound of New England trees early summer mornings. I love that they can fly. But the problem is that one’s relationship with a bird is momentary. If you have food, they’ll come. For a little while, until their full. They eat, maybe sing you a song, and then fly away. Never to return. So you ask me why I don’t take the time to learn their names? That’s why.

    It was really interesting to read your bird entry after writing my own. Mine was very personal and was about the connection I had to my pet cockatiel, whereas yours was very distant, not even knowing their names. I love how drastic the differences in writing can be, even when we are all writing on the same topic.

    I like your explanation for why you don’t care for birds. I feel like a lot of people need to explain why they are not interested in things….maybe it’s because other people are so interested in that same thing
