shadow and mirror

The baby chicks came on Monday. It's been a long time since we've had them, and I had absolutely forgotten how delicate and vulnerable they are. Every part of them is fragile, and I could so easily crush one by just picking her up. We always lose a few, and when they die their bodies seem to collapse as if all of their volume was air.

R gets so worried about the ones who look like they might not make it. I wonder how she thinks about what is going to happen to the ones that live.
