Clever Duck

Clever duckling, you silly fowl

Don’t stop moving, despite the growl

Barn dog barks, hurry home!

Little duck your pain you own.

Now get up, you feather-brain

Follow the pointed weather vane

March your feet and strut your stuff

Little duckling had enough!

Puffed out chest, you’re doing well

You got up every time you fell

Keep on going!  Your heart is whole

And don’t stop winning till you reach the goal

Opportunity Of A Lifetime

What if you had the chance to study abroad?
If a university of a foreign country singled you, and a handful of other students out, and said “Come to our country and we’ll hook you up.”
But the catch was, you only had five months to do this in.

Five months to apply for VISA’s and passports, find a job, a place to stay, and the money to leave your country.
But!  You get to stay in this country for 6 years.

Would you do it?
You’d almost be an idiot not to.

Think about the possibilities.  The opportunities for your children.

….think about how comfortable it is to live on a secluded continent out on the ocean, where your only concerns are the southern neighbors.

Think about the countryside!  Romping about in the mountains, and woods.  Seeing old architecture, and trying desperately hard not to get too attached, after all VISA’s expire, and all of the people you love are still back home.

The opportunity dangles in the front of your mind, invitingly.
What will you do with it?
Is it really possible?
