When I was a young fellow, my view of what was genuine and conceivable in the universe depended on the commence that “certainties” and “rationale” were the foundations of what was broadly recognized as “reality”. I clung to this misconstrued thought certainly, not understanding that there is without a doubt enchantment on the planet, and that we frequently just must be in the ideal place, at the opportune time to find it.
My idea of the truth was going to change perpetually on the charming island of Rhodes, Greece. Rhodes is loaded with riddle, as it was once home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Colossus of Rhodes, a gigantic bronze statue raised in 280 BC, which at more than 30 meters tall, stood superbly guarding the harbor.
It was inside this legendary setting that I wound up with my voyaging amigo and great companion Wendell. Wendell and I had been crossing all through Europe for a while, and had dared to Rhodes with the goal of review the spot where the well known statue had once stood. We were spellbound by the excellence and appeal of the island, and fascinated by the peculiar feeling noticeable all around this was a place where anything could happen.
As we lackadaisical walked around the old segment of town one sunny evening, we all of a sudden heard a boisterous and intense fluttering of wings specifically overhead. We looked up, and were bewildered by the nearness of the biggest pelican we had ever observed. Incredibly the pelican nimbly coasted to an arrival specifically before us.
We stood quietly expanding at the fowl, surprised. The pelican then started strolling down the walkway eagerly, as though it had an express goal as a main priority. We immediately taken after at a sheltered separation to guarantee that we didn’t prevent it from its objective.
It was a hot summer day, and similar to the custom on the island, shops coating the road had their entryways open to welcome guests, and to permit the reviving ocean breeze to enter the premises.
The pelican kept strolling, and afterward stopped quickly before abruptly entering a nearby drug store. We enthusiastically tailed it inside, where a modest bunch of clients were perusing calmly.
Decisively the pelican strolled past the perplexed supporters to a bordering back room of the shop, where he started pacing forward and backward before racks which put away a variety of solution, as though looking for a specific thing. We as a whole stood transfixed, viewing the unusual conduct of this bizarre animal. After a couple of minutes he appeared to desert his impossible to miss journey, and returned the inside of the shop.
We sat tight eagerly for what might occur next. Shockingly he then halted inside the focal point of our little gathering, and thus taken a gander at each of us straightforwardly in our eyes, as though attempting to pass on some individual message.
