Over the hedge
A grocery shopping trip ended with a surprising spectacle.
As I was standing in a parking lot getting ready to load the weekly groceries into the family car, I heard an incredible sound. It was otherworldly and I could not fathom what it was – until I looked up!
Above me, I saw a hundred sandhill cranes flying in formation, weaving themselves together with sounds that were sweet and high and undulating.
As they disappeared out of sight, I looked around me and saw mothers, fathers, children, and store attendants all with a look of wonder on their faces. We all smiled to one another. No words were necessary!
