Violet is laying an egg daily afte a fairly long eggless period. She still misses Bertha even though she ,Bertha,bullied her mercilessly. She still pauses and looks across at where her old coop used to stand.I wish I could see inside her silly little head,just for an instant. I'm sure I'd find a mixture of emotions; sadness,longing,regret. A much,much much MUCH diluted version of what goes on in our own heads; but a version nonetheless.
