Adorned with swiss chard
The deep questions

Of flightless birds who are excellent navigators

A story that I read has been on my mind lately: A person travels to a faraway place where a penguin vomits a big green mess on them. They are at first upset, then see it as a cosmic joke until someone tells them that penguins nurture their young by chewing food, mixing it up with God's enzymes, and then vomiting it into the mouths of their babies. It is suggested that the person was not the butt of a cosmic joke, but rather received a special gift of love and nurturing. I keep thinking about how things happen to us that we perceive as "bad" when, if we look at it another way, perhaps it is a gift (albeit one not tied up neatly in a bow).
