Coco Calling No.145 - The Downside of One-upmanship
Springtime is springing forth, and all of God’s creation is starting to stir. The first couple of Swallows have flown passed the kitchen window, and swathes of daffodils and narcissus are nodding in the early morning breeze outside. Lord Strutt, our local cock pheasant, is puffing himself up to twice his normal size to impress all of his girlfriends and to intimidate his rivals. And there’s a blackbird busy gathering a beak full of worms showing that he’s recently become a father. There’s a fresh hope, a vibrancy and an optimism about the world which is a joy to behold.
