I'm feeling a little sad and I wanted to say so. I don't know why. Sometimes, when it's been a lovely day or I've seen something beautiful, it makes me sad. There is a magnolia tree in somebody's front garden in my neighbourhood. I love magnolia trees. When I saw it, for a moment, I thought it was full of quiet pink birds perching. It made me stop, its beauty clutched at me. And then I felt sad. I didn't see it today but when I thought about why I might be feeling sad, that is what came to me.
