Q for Quill, Question, Quotation

A lone feather found along the trail may make us wonder about what we know not.

"For the first time in four billion years a living creature had contemplated himself
and heard with a sudden, unaccountable loneliness, the whisper of the wind in the night reeds.”
― Loren Eiseley, The Immense Journey

Quelle beauté! :-) I love the details of this lovely feather and the way the light makes it so luminous, and hope the bird who lost it is none the worse for it.

Very nice quote, too!
