QuotesAdd a Quote
Animals compete for resources, just like humans. They eat one another. They fight for dominance. Nature is not always pretty or fair or kind. But sometimes surprises happen. And Samar, every spring night, reminded me there is beauty in stillness and grace in acceptance. And that you're never too old to be surprised. Pg. 30
Different languages, different food, different customs. That's our neighborhood: wild and tangled and colorful. Like the best kind of garden. pg. 54
