Two birds deep in conversation reminded me of something thought provoking I read :-
A young magpie was talking to a corella when snow began to fall.
“What’s a snowflake?” asked the young magpie.
“Nothing” replied the corella.
“What does it weigh?”
“Nothing more than nothing.” came the answer.
Well the young magpie stood there and watched the snowflakes falling on a nearby gum.
He counted the snowflakes.
He counted 4,637,815 snowflakes.
Then the 4,637,816th snowflake settled on the tree
and the branch broke off and crashed to the ground.
“Mmm”, said the young magpie to the corella,
“So that’s what you say is nothing more than nothing.”
You can never discount the power of the small and powerless when they come together!
