I’m thrilled to share an amazing story about a highly perceptive budgie (pet parakeet) – who pulled off a stunning feat, and its significance to me personally and you too, possibly, at this time of new beginnings.
Night before last, I dreamed I dropped an egg on the kitchen floor. This egg was about half the size of the typical chicken eggs we Americans know so well. Naturally, the egg broke open.
To my amazement, within the primordial little mound of mucous and shell bits, life moved! I was entranced by the impetus of this unformed bit of creation to survive.
I could see its eyes in there, as it stoically started wiggling forward, something like an embryonic jellyfish, if there is such a thing. It quickly began evolving into a nondescript little animal form… and several other broken eggs somehow appeared as well, all alive and evolving in their goopy puddles – when I woke up.
The Little Budgie Who Could
The next day – the day following the curious dream – this rather astonishing story from Mental Floss appeared:
