The two swans have it good. They are together, gently necking on the rippling ponds. They occasionally peck down for a snack. They are well wrapped up against the cold.
And it's all free.
When they want some nourishment, they just find it and take it from the bounty of the good earth.
Their needs are relatively few. They don't use money. or credit cards. They have no economy at all.
These are simple creatures. Not evolved, highly developed, as we are. With our money worries. Our gadgets. Our notions that you have to work for a living.Our strange barriers, erected by our proud sophistication, between us and the world.
And our sense of  puzzlement, at why this increasing sophistication seems to make us no happier.
