Yesterday I was walking through town on my way home from work. The roadworks around the corner of Wellington and William have disrupted the normal traffic pattern, so now a big swell of pedestrians builds up waiting to cross to the bus and train stations.

We were all standing there, eyes down, minds numb, waiting for the little green man, when someone started laughing at us. It was a kookaburra, perched atop the facade of the old Wellington building. It had been out in the world all day, snacking from the river, flying around as it pleased, while we were locked in our glass cages.

No wonder it was laughing.
