The Story of Sheep
“‘Just imagine,’ ‘I wonder,’ and ‘What if’ are some of my favorite words in the English language. They conjure up the possible, the impossible, and the just plain crazy.” Abigail Walsh tells us a story of sheep, and his best friend bird. In “The Story of Sheep” from PKN Christchurch Vol. 21 we also hear about elephant, a retired mountain guide who sheep desires to meet. Abigail tells us how her story came to life, and how it was interwoven with her own.
