Some weeks ago, I peeked out our kitchen window at the patch of ground where we daily spread birdseed and deer corn, just to see what might be out there. And lo and behold, what met my eyes came as a shock. You see, a mere five yards away strode a fullgrown male peacock, pecking away at the seeds, his long tailfeathers flowing behind him like a royal train. (By the way, I know that peacock infers a male of the species, but peafowl sounds dumb to me.) Without giving it proper thought, I tapped on the window, which as you might imagine startled the bird. He swung around, lifting his tail feathers up in that familiar wide arc, scores of “eyes” imprinted on his magnificent plumage now staring at me. A defensive display intended to invoke terror, I’m sure; but instead, I felt only wonder at the bird’s beauty. Here was Nature flaunting Her capacity for the unique and gorgeous, and I was the lucky benefactor of that vision.

We all see them, at Wal-Mart, the workplace, or looking in the mirror. Maybe with a sling on their arm, or favoring a strained back muscle, or limping through the door on their good leg.
