The broiler " ghost" hens sunbathing
We take so many things for granted.
Last night I watched a Sky documentary which was rather ho-hum
The presenter, however, did allow himself , a moment of gushing, after a group of India women, resplendent in their multi coloured saris, walked into view upon a barren and sunbaked landscape and his emotional reaction to such a visual experience proved to be a rather moving experience.
Here are a few of mine, brainstormed during a wet and cold walk this morning
- Being present at scores of patient deathbeds, watching a fellow human being taking their last breath on this planet.
- Looking at Sheffield's Skyline on a cold night from the roof of the city's Cancer Hospital
- Witnessed four hens corner, attack and subsequently kill a crow who had been stealing their layers pellets.
- watched twins being delivered by emergency Cesarean section.
- Winked at by a handsome Yorkshire policeman when he was on duty
- Taking in the vast and graceful Sydney Harbour for the first time on a sunny Sunday afternoon
- Sitting through a maths class as a giggling twelve year old in front of busty Mrs Fielding who had two buttons of her blouse undone.
- Driving into New York City at night for the first time.
- Watching an emergency doctor perform internal cardiac massage
- Being the only human watching four dogs galloping happily on an empty beach
- Over an hour lying in warm grass, watching six abused factory broiler hens finally leaving their hen house ,to sun bathe for the very first time.
- Seeing my husband smiling so uncharacteristically during the entirety of our wedding.
