Wing-Feather Fable: Andrew Windershins Finds His Talent

Today, I bring you a special treat – a Wing-Feather Fable, written by my partner and collaborator, Lisa Ahn. Finding our one special talent is often a long and winding journey, with many dead-ends and false starts along the way. Follow Andrew Windershins as he discovers his unique gift.



Andrew Windershins had failed at everything he tried. Even as an infant, he was a total disappointment. While other mothers bragged of babies sleeping through the night and gobbling their mush, poor Mrs. Windershins could only wring her hands and bite her lip. Andrew caterwauled from dusk to dawn and tried to snort his gruel. Violet asked her sister, “Do you think there’s something wrong?” but the sanguine Polly said, “He simply hasn’t found his talent.”

  1. Another great pairing of your imaginative photography and Lisa Ahn’s imaginative prose.

  2. I never read the stories (sorry) but find this image wonderful. You make a sculpture that I would probably ignore, interesting and worth looking at.

I greatly appreciate your comments!
