Last night I took a walk along Lake Michigan. The lake was placid. My mind relaxed. I sat down on the sand.

A pelican landed next to me.

I said, “What a nice night.”

The pelican said, “Not for me. When there’s no wind, I have to flap my wings frantically. There are no currents of wind to ride on.”

I said, “Well, can you not go anywhere for now?”

The pelican said, “I guess. I mean it’s not like I have to be some place.”
