[Follow my mom says she's not a hugger. but when i put my arms around her on a gloomy day or after bad news she's the last to let go. my dad says he doesn't want gifts on his birthday, but i see the way his face lights up when i get him a card with a nice message and a box full of chocolate anyway. he's just a kid inside, still. it makes him giddy. my brother never says i love you. but when i tell him "i just need to finish the dishes before vacuum!" he wordlessly goes to vacuum the entire house before i can, and if he sees me struggle with a wrapper or a jar or a bottle he mutters 'c'mere' and opens it for me without even sparing me a glance. the thing is, people love you quietly, and you love them quietly, and the air is buzzing with tiny but grand gestures & once you look for them, you find them everywhere. i think that's really beautiful.
The BitterSweet Life Follow Interviewed a little girl this morning that feeds crows and they bring her gifts in return. Here's her collection. No, but think about this. The crows she feeds obviously have their own little lives. They go about their business, and they spot *pretty thing* or /unique thing/ in question. What gets me is that the "first* thing on their minds as recipient of this thing is the little girl that feeds them, They spot a thing, and immediately must think, "that nice girl with delicious foodstuffs must have this to show my gratitude. kedreeva \t's actually more than that, though, if you read the articles or watch the videos. This has taken place over YEARS- it started with these birds following this littie girl around because she was a messy eater and it has tumed into a ritual for the family. They have a water station and foad stations where they daily set out things for these birds and sometimes (but not always), these binds leave 'payment' behind for the food. BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE These birds are not just taking food and leaving shinies. These birds are watching over this family now. Their lives have become involved These crows are keeping track of this git! and her mother even when they are out of the yard. How do we know? One of them is phatographer, and one day while she was photographing some stuff on bridge, she dropped her camera's lenscap aver the edge. There was no way she could get it back, so she left it. When she got home, the lenscap was sitting on the edge of one of the feeding stations, waiting for her: Not only were the birds following and watching over her, they were smart enough to realize she dropped an Important Thing and cared
nathanielwsninski So i just came out to my dad abt being nb, and he said something really wise about names, i think. He said "Gifts are not obligations. You give things to people, and you hope they like them. And your name was a gift from us to you. If it doesn't work for you anymore, you're not ahlinatan tn aan it"

We've been feeding a small family of four crows (mated pair and their two year old kids) for several years. Last week two days ina row they left these gifts, pull tabs threaded onto pine twigs. This isn't only generous, it's creative, it's art. My mind is blown.
We will not have any bunnies available until after Easter. Bunnies sold as Easter gifts to children are the most abandoned animal a month or two after they are brought home and we do not wish to support this. Sorry for the inconvenience.
