Art: The Best Nest by Artist Amie R Gillingham

Based on Mr. Bird's mantra in "The Best Nest" by PD Eastman (1909-1986). Eastman, a regular collaborator with Theodor Geissel (Dr Seuss), deftly addresses ideas of the perfect home, and ideas of what we think we want, and what we need. Mr Bird, our protagonist, keeps building nests in innapropriate places, trying to find the perfect place to nest. I found this quest timely as I am personally struggling with the conflicting desires to move versus nesting and making the best of urban living in a newly loud apartment building.

"I love my house, I love my nest, in all the world, my nest is best!"
