Why are they always alone?
Is this the way they would want it?
I can't help but feel sorry for them. I've spent many a minute thinking about what it would be like to be the only crane in a world of ducks. The crane is always standing off to one side of the pond all by his lonesome. He appears to be content... but is he really? I find it hard to believe that any living earthly creature could spend all of his days alone with no one else to talk to. You would literally be living in a world of your own thoughts and only your own thoughts. That thought is just plain terrifying to me.
So, here's to you, Mr. Crane. You accomplish daily something that I couldn't accomplish for a week. I admire your strength. And if you ever get lonely, just hop on over to the next pond. I know another crane or two that could use a friend.
