I love to see children who are so delicate and gentle with animals. It warms my heart amidst a sea of brats pulling cats’ tails and getting whacked.
Also JESUS THAT’S A SNUGGLY CHICKEN.
I love how she reaches up on her tippy toes to snuggle into his shoulder.
To be more exact, that’s a hen. Which is the female. This is likely not his first encounter with her. My grandpa had chickens and hens, and if you visit them frequently like this they develop affection to you. I would know, because I sat in the chicken coop alot. The hens get a small maternal kick, and come to cuddle you because she wants to keep you warm, like she would do with her chicks. This means the boy has spent alot of time with her, and that just makes it more heart warming.
Transitions. Staircases serve such a conventional purpose. They’re locomotive, they bring us from one floor to the next, they’re much safer than an elevator in a fire. They need not be decorative; they might be tucked into a corner, disguised. But they can also be a canvas for artistic embellishment, the centerpiece in the foyer of a manse conceived of and constructed to make a statement, or an agent of deception. Allegedly, the double-helic staircase in Chateau de Chambord (shown above) in the Loire Valley was built so that the mistress could descend from the Lord’s stateroom without being intercepted by the wife as she returned home.
this spiral staircase from peles castle is purely decorative btw, which is kinda sad and weird. they also have a few heating stoves which are purely decorative because they’ve had a heating system in place.
