To wake in the night and listen, in the surrounding silence, to the quiet breathing of someone sleeping next to you.
First thing in the morning I raise the blind and there is a pigeon sitting in profile on a television aerial. It strikes me that if you draw a line from under the beak of the bird (any bird really) to the lower part of its breast, you have a question mark. In the same way, hidden in the shape of a bird are two eggs. The first and smaller egg is its head; the second is its body.
