A Marriage Blessed by the Sun – Page 1

Long, long ago, when the world was not yet complete, the great god Maya looked around the sacred spot where he had created the various species of birds and noticed a few leftover greyish-white feathers, a long slender beak, a few tiny bones and muscles that hadn't been used. Because he couldn't stand the idea of wasting even what little remained, he picked them up and put them together to create the frame of a very tiny bird to which he added a long beak. He then gave this tiny new bird the gift of life.
