    An oriole sings to a dying father. A bleeding-heart dove saves the day. A crow wakes a woman’s resolve. Owls help a boy endure isolation. Cockatoos attend the laying of the dead.

    Always there are birds in these linked stories that pay homage to kindness amidst loss, grief, discord and displacement, from Australia to the Philippines, across cultures and species.

    When we encounter that snag in the breath, that shadow of a wing, we hope to remember kindness. 

    Kindness cannot self-isolate. It moves both ways and all ways, like breath.
