a02babette_emailHarvey writes about this piece:  “A bird is tiny compared to a planetary sphere, yet this bird is almost the same size suggesting that each has a significant role to play in the balancing act we call life. Bird has chosen to make her nest on a human-created object; the book. Books and text (language) point to the intelligence and knowledge… If we are willing to communicate with one another, we might find a peaceful and inclusive way to live in harmony on this planet.”
