Stick: ah, Heron, here you are, I wanted to ask you something, have you ever experienced days when nothing goes right?
Heron: yes, of course, Stick, those days are part of life, don't you know it yet?
Stick: that' s what I thought, but I wanted to check with you. Do you know why they come?
Heron: I have an idea, but I don't know if it 's right. I think they are tests.
Heron: yes, endurance tests, personality tests. Tests to find out if you are going to quit or to continue.
Stick: have you an example?
Heron: the other day, I was quietly perched on one of my legs watching for fish that did not come when a branch felt on me. Somewhat stunned, I decided to go back to my heronry to rest, but my wing ached, so I had to hobble there, it was quite a disgrace. When I arrived, I had no more house, it had been destroyed by the storm.
Stick: what did you do?
Heron: I laid down in a thicket, hoping that the fox would not find me. I spent the night there, the wind calmed down, my wing recovered, I repaired my heronry the next day with all the branches that the wind had dropped on the ground.
Stick: you are awesome, Heron.
Heron: when nothing goes well, you must regain strength and wait for the next day. If nothing is solved, at least you have fresh energy to start the day and fix what needs to be.
Stick: and if it lasts?
Heron: it cannot last forever if you do something to make it better. That is also in the order of things, that's why I say that these are normal stages of life.
Stick: yes, tests, I understand better.
Heron: when something disturbs you, Stick, let time pass. It will allow you to find the solution that escapes you in the moment because you're too busy with what's wrong
Stick: I have to clear my head, is it right?
Heron: yes, you can say that. By the way, did you think about my fish?
Stick ah, ah, Heron, you always get back on track! Yes, I have them, I put them here.
