Artist's description:

That the birds of worry and care fly about your head
This you cannot change
But that they build nests in your hair
This you can prevent
-Chinese proverb

This little proverb plopped into my in-box last week, and I smiled as soon as I read it. I could just imagine the nest being built in my hair when I spent too much time fretting about anything. It was the perfect prompt for this piece of art, which is a reminder to let our worries fly about, but never let them set up house.
