From "Prodigal Summer" By Barbara Kingsolver
There are many excerpts I could share from this book, but since this one is right in front of me, I'll share it. This woman works as a forest/park ranger in the mountains:
"... she'd been thinking about dusting off her Smokey the Bear hat... and putting it out there on the boulder every morning with seed on the brim so the birds would get used to landing on it. Eventually she'd be able to put it on and walk around with a gaggle of chickadees on her head, for no purpose other than her own foolish amusement."
I thought this was really cute.
