Swans 2

Remember “The Ugly Duckling” story? Do people still read that story to their children? I loved that book as a kid, the idea that the poor ugly duck who everyone teased would turn out to be a swan, the most beatiful of them all.  It spoke to the ways I felt awkward as a kid, like I didn’t fit in. Watching this swan last weekend, I was remembering the story. Look forward to reading it to my own kids, seeing what it means to me now, 25 years later.

    I don’t know if I have ever read The Ugly Duckling to my kids. If I did, it was probably part of an anthology. I need to go find a copy and rectify this situation. Those swans are elegant, aren’t they?

    Yay! What beautiful photos you have here. I don’t think I read Ugly Duckling to my kids myself, but I know both of them have read it in school.
