I often wonder what someone, something, anything animate or inanimate, might be thinking. I believe even an inanimate object can feel, thus I would never haphazardly toss my shoes into the closet, or set something heavy on top of them, for example. It is much easier to wonder what animals are thinking since they are sentient, but cannot speak English. Thus, they have to be thinking something, but they have no verbal way of telling me. So, I am left to observing their behavior and concluding from that what possibly might be going through their minds.
Such is the case with the above pigeon. It was reaching elegantly and gracefully for its closest tail feather. It instantly looked to me like a ballet dancer reaching for her toe over her back. That lead me to thinking of BLACK SWAN, the 2010 movie starring Natalie Portman (my movie review). Might this pigeon want to be the Black Swan?
