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
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.
