Every day this week I’ve been seeing this mother duck and her duckling wandering around outside the corporate park where I work. Sadly, this duckling is the last one still alive from the nest that once bore a whole batch of ducklings. Over time they disappeared, presumably to nocturnal predators, but this one tough duckling seems to be capable of hanging on to survive another day. That means I too am capable of hanging on to survive another day, which is just the wisdom I need to start the day off right.
I really hope this duckling makes it.
