A tale about the Little Yellow Chick

Look for the place where your joy lives

- Why did you not tell me that pecking hurts? Why were you silent? Where are you heading to, anyway?

- I do not know exactly, but I know for sure that I have to run and run quickly.

- Hmmm… Maybe you just sit down, fellow, spend some time treating your feet with some natural remedy, and think where are you running to?

Little Yellow Chick sat down, he covered his feet with burdock that grew in abundance there; and he started to feel so calm and peaceful.

- Thank you, Uncle Rooster, that you pecked me, otherwise I would be running as crazy for a long time, not knowing where…

- Hey, why are you sitting here, all lazy, Little Yellow Chick? Go home and tidy up your room!

- I would like to sit and stare in the sky instead, and think where am I running and why…

- Nonsense! Eggs don’t teach the hen! — frowned Aunt Hen angrily.

- Well, maybe an egg can’t teach the hen, but I am not an egg anymore, I am a whole unique chick, round, fluffy, yellow piece of happiness!

“Oh My God!” — thought Yellow Chick, “This is a miracle, and I was behind creating it. Does that mean that I am a Joy?!”
