I went for a walk along Coal Creek after lunch today. I was surprised by the cliff swallows nesting under the bridge there. As I watched the birds fly to and fro, I was amazed at their agility. I noticed that their mud-daubed nests built underneath the overhanging bridge looked very secure. I began to wonder, what does Quality mean to a swallow?
Obviously, it must be location, location, location. The nests are really inaccessible from the ground, the birds can eat the flying insects that hover above the creek, and they could get mud to make their nests. The birds’ hard work and attention to detail resulted in these marvelous nests.
The birds will only stay here until early Fall, they are only visitors and will fly further south for the winter.
All that hard work and the cliff swallows will live there only a few months.
And yet, without being able to pay attention to important details their summer homes wouldn’t have been possible.
Isn’t this an example of Quality?
