I Wonder:

I always wonder why birds stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth. Then I ask myself the same question. -Harun Yahya
This is a misnomer. Birds don't stay in the same place. Some are migratory. Canadian Geese for example. If they're in Canada and it starts getting cold, they head south for the winter. Other birds may not fly as far, but they do fly around. For example, if someone is handing out popcorn, pigeons will fly in from all over. And when the popcorn is gone, so are the pigeons.

People don't stay in the same place either. If they're not happy where they're at and they think somewhere else is better and that they can get there, they go. Sometimes they go just because they're bored and they want to see someplace different. If they stay in the new place for a few weeks and return, it's called a vacation. If they stay for a few years, it's called prison. Or more usually, relocation.

So if you're stuck somewhere, it's probably because you don't think there's is someplace better that you can get to.


  1. Or maybe, you don't have wings to fly away, or you are a caged bird.

    1. You don't need wings to go away, just determination. And if you're caged, the bars are usually gold and the door is open. What keeps you there is that you don't expect the cage someplace else to be as nice.

    2. I guess you haven't lived in a country where cages are just that - cages. :)

    3. I've only lived in two. Let's hope there's not a third one on the list.
