There’s something about animals that I really love. They are pure souls and their curiosity reminds me of toddlers, but then they are beautifully developed already.
Sometimes I really feel a sort of mutual compassion between us, and this particular bird seemed eager to play and get to know me almost. In one moment we just seemed to understand each other without the need for any common language. Words can be confusing sometimes anyway.
Her vividly orange cheeks reminded me of circus performers. It didn’t seem right to leave her there in the cage when I could clearly picture her performing on stage, making people laugh freely without a care in the world.
