He looks so smug, doesn’t he? “Look! Look! Look what I found!” And Finders, Keepers after all.
On top of walls of concrete, nestled deep away we meet Mr. Raven. He hates flying, unlike the other birds. He’s always looking down enviously at the small ants below his nest on the skyscraper. So many different people, making a grey and black mass down below, like little ants sprawling about.
One day when Mr. Raven was curiously keeping a watch over the ants, what did he see? An abandoned shoe! Without hesitation Mr. Raven flew down to the alley below.
But oh to his grief, the shoe was too big. And far to heavy to lift.
But Mr. Raven was smart, yes he was. So instead he jumped with both feet into the shoe.
From there he stood looking at the humans up close… right where he felt at home.
A friend of mine wrote this short story to accompany it.
(He’s brilliant. Give him some love. We want him to join RB.)
