There’s something about an egg. It’s such a promise. When friends online share spring photos of robin and hummingbird nests, I see the future. Writing this made me think of the promise of the loon eggs in my own Finding Family, and the mysteries, sadnesses, and even gifts that can result when the promise is broken. And of Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hatches the Egg. I’m not the world’s biggest Seuss fan, but how I love Horton.
“Promise” was the first word I saw in the magnetic tiles, and from there I went looking for some of the things hinted at in a human egg. Yesterday, my sister Patty and I saw many animals on a little hike, and every creature, every egg, every kit/chick/calf or whatever, always fills me with fresh awe!
