#006 alan the magpie


"Alan is just moving into his golden years and is unsure about adopting a pace of existence which time to reflect. He managed to successfully steer an acclaimed career and a happy family unit through all the sorrows and joys that life throws at you. With his daughter’s new-born girl and boy to keep things busy, he might not feel the drop in pace for a while. Although lamenting the move into retirement, it frees him up for some big new adventures: more time to discover the secret places in the world he’s always been too busy to stop and explore. " (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
