What a great picture of swans. I didn’t know they hung out in such great bunches in the region my friend lives. Fun.
They’re always used as a picture of serenity.
But that serenity comes at a price. They paddle like crazy to make that stately headway — we just can’t see it.
It’s a pretty good metaphor for Peace isn’t it? Maintain calm and paddle on.
Lots of paddling to be done. Lots of headway to be made in the waters of Peace.
And, really, why did I never wonder about swimming swans in the winter? I guess I was too busy trying to remember the next verse…
But… Paddle like hell for Peace.
