This is a thought that stuck me in the evening of 14th February.The bird shown here is the Asian Brown Flycatcher,a migrant.This bird leaves in late March,and arrives in early October.
The arrival of this bird has been giving me hapiness since 1986,and mixed feelings since 2011.
This is the concept behind this panting.The birdwatcher is in his own world,and the bird is in its own world.The bird is unaware of the feelings of the bird-watcher.The bird is happy to leave for summer,where it is going to breed,but the bird-water is sad to know that the bird is leaving and may not return.
It stuck me that some parents may have such mixed feelings about their children,who in turn may not care what the parent thinks or feels.
