Today I was walking along the beach. I came upon a quail walking towards me on the sand. I was surprised because they are allusive and prefer to remain in hiding. I figured it was an omen.

I said, “Hello, what brings you out today?”

The quail said, “I need the exercise, and there was no one around…I didn’t see you coming till just now.”

I said, “Do you have any words of wisdom for me today?”

The quail looked up at the overcast sky and said, “sometimes the sun shines, and sometimes you can only feel it through the clouds, but that’s pretty good too.”

I said, “Okay, well, I appreciate it.”

The quail nodded and moved on. Me too.

I wished I didn’t have to approach animals for advice.
