Angels Among Us

Shala, a parrot

I am wondering if I met an angel yesterday. Her name is Shala and we met at the DeVargas Mall in Santa Fe, casually perched on the back of the chair of her friend and caregiver Lyndall. She says she is 28 years old, but I don't think she looks a day over 15 and she is really quite beautiful. Apparently her favorite words are Visa . . . MasterCard . . . American Express . . . learned I understand from her days hanging out in the store of her Colorado Springs caregiver.

I like what Emily Dickinson had to say about birds,

“ I hope you love birds too. It is economical. It saves going to heaven.”
