Day Ninety-One: The Bird is Back!
Everybody in a 12-step program knows that ninety days is a critical juncture in the road to recovery. Why would it be any different in a 365 Birds program?
I almost quit making birds for good. For one whole week I did not make a bird; I did not even visit my Bird Blog to see if anyone noticed and left a comment.
But in the past few days, I've gotten some concerned e-mails and phone calls from my loyal followers. To which I can only say, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Today is a warm and beautiful spring day. Today, I made this simple bird from cork and Lotka paper, and hung him outside for a photo shoot. Can I say that I'm safely past the danger of giving up completely? Well, no, I can't. But today I made a bird, and today is all any of us has.
