Another trip to the forest to sit on a very hot day. Scorchio in fact; had to find some shade. On the way, I found a bird by the wayside that looked like it may have been hit by a car. This is a young crow and most people see this as vermin around these parts, however, it was alike and shouting so I scooped it up and it is now in the shade with water and food and we will see if it pulls through. Compassion and metta should be unboundless, applied to the big and the small, the ugly and the beautiful equally.
