A New Baby Roadrunner

Nature is abundant. As an eloquent friend says, it is “wildly resilient.” Or as they used to say in France, “The King is dead! Long live the King!” (Later, they got rid of the King so the metaphor only goes so far. Political systems don’t last as long as evolution.)

We lost a baby roadrunner last week. Yesterday, Nature brought us another. We don’t mean “us” in the parochial sense. Nature brought the world, of which we are all a part, another roadrunner because evolution requires abundance of all life forms and because life is wildly resilient. It doesn’t matter whether you are a human being or a roadrunner, “There is a great River of Life flowing through the Cosmos and we are not separate from it.”

Join us for a quick sip from the River. (Click for enlargements)

  1. MommyRoadRunner Says:

    Three baby road runners were found under my husbands trailer on an oilfield location in South Texas, and after several hours of the parents not returning he put them in a box w/ a nest and brought them to my 17 month old son and I to rescue them, but I’m clueless as to what to do with them! They are tiny, but their eyes are open and feathers have started to grow. Do you have any advice as to what we should do to help them survive? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
