How to Heal a Broken Wing

Curiosity and empathy are two traits I crave for Liliana.  Of course, they can’t be forced.  She has to see Dan and me practicing both on a daily basis.

How to Heal a Broken Wing by Bob Graham is a perfect tool to encourage growth and foster discussion in these areas.

A boy named Will finds a maimed bird on the city sidewalk.  His family takes the bird home to care for it, with the ultimate goal of releasing it.  [I do understand the admonition by people such as the DNR, asking people not to touch animals…to leave them be, but in certain instances I don’t think it can hurt, if you don’t allow the animal to stay past recovery.]

Spare with words, profuse with pictures, the book is lovely.

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
