… The early blackbirds fly guilty from a dawn haul of fallen fruit. We too breakfast on sweetnesses … – Gillian Clarke

Kate Ziehm

When I read this line I can’t help but wonder, do the crows really feel guilty? Probably not. Then why do we when we indulge in sweetness? Why not change our way of thinking, and embrace sweetness, and salt, full and empty, with the ebb and flow of life. Balance.
