Sometimes I need a reason. And yesterday the reason landed at my feet in the form of a hairless, helpless abandoned baby bird. At first I could hardly stand to look at him, as he resembled a mound of torn flesh lying on the sidewalk. But when I released him to the hands of the animal sanctuary worker, I found myself feeling attached and emotional.
I haven't drove so slow in ages and without the A/C my car was unbearable. But I knew the temperature of my baking car would keep him toasty and his breathing immediately improved (I glanced over every two minutes to check).
Do I love my pretty shoes? Of course. Do I like my dresses? Without a doubt. Do I worry about money and crap? Certainly. But sometimes, you just need a reason to remind you that that isn't all we're put on this earth to do.

(I was listening to this on full blast on my headphones when I discovered the avian. Pop some headphones in to enjoy this song. It'll quickly become your favourite as it is mine).
