"Being born in a duck yard does not matter, if only you are hatched from a swan's egg."
Hans Christian Anderson, "The Ugly Duckling" Swans come and go in a small lake behind my home. When I see them through the double French doors, I try to grab my camera and take a break from my busy schedule to go down by the water. Even when I only have fifteen minutes to spare, those times are precious and relaxing for me. They change my perspective for the rest of the day!
