Either it's getting late, or I'm having some of whateverTrish is having... after my first "Wowsa!!" at the incredible blue sea, I think to myself, "Why does the mexican cliff jumper have a bird on his head ???"
Reality seeps in, and I find myself thinking, LOVE the perspective, thoroughly enjoyed the story, and pine for the beautiful blue sea. Bird is identifiable, and has a 'getting free' attitude even tho so small.
And I haven't had the, ummm, good fortune yet to have seen the acursed flowers- may have to go there now !
