June 3 ~ Day 8
Spring is such a wondrous time. Everything is bursting with life. I scoop up a fallen nest and an unhatched robin's egg, thrilled with the opportunity to further study objects that I would never dream of disturbing in their natural habitats. The intricate weave of the nest is truly impressive, as are the materials used. I reflect on my own pregnancies and marvel at the instinct for all life to reproduce itself.
"We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time."
from Little Gidding, T. S. Eliot
