Posted on July, 12th 2013 by Marie

Today on my morning walk, a feather fell from the sky and landed vertically the grass right next to where I was walking. It came spiraling out of the sky and ended up with its end drilled into the grass, and thus inserting itself perfectly upright in the grass. As if someone in the sky ...
