A walk in a park is reason enough to get motivated. When I came upon some ducks, the message was clear which caused me to pause and think a lot about the following topics:
- Getting Attention
- Showing Off
In my illustration of duck tales, there were about a dozen ducks onshore and only one in the water who didn't get out. That one duck in the water ruffled its feathers, showed off, did a lot of squawking to get attention while the others remained silent, listening, staring, barely moving, simply watching the one in the water. This lasted about a good 3-4 minutes. Finally, the two big ducks (not seen in my photographs) sounded off a loud honk and all of the ones on the ground flew up and into the pond aggressively chasing the duck that appeared to be the one who was causing all the attention. In other words, this wasn't a cat fight but it was a duck fight that went on for some time!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
Tensions are everywhere. The demands of basic needs of survival, such as food, space, and a sense of belonging is everywhere! Being overwhelmed is an emotion. Having resilience, strength to walk away and not get involved is a lot harder than it looks. Duck tales proves it! Beware, troublemakers are everywhere. Somebody always wants to be heard. The moral of the story is actions always speak louder than words!
