Bird: A Blessing in the Skies

This is the true story of a baby robin that I raised during May of 2001. These two weeks were among the most precious in my life, and I will always be so grateful for the experience.

About Donna Overall

I was born in Columbus, Georgia at Fort Benning to a career military family. I spent some of my formative years running around in a loin cloth in the Philippine Islands where my father was stationed for three years. I was on a Boy, Son of Tarzan kick at the time and it really did mess up my favorite fantasy when I hit puberty and developed boobs. Then I became Sheena the Jungle Girl.

I have had such a colorful, varied life that people who know me say I should write a book. I divide my life into separate my Hippie Period, My Greek Period, my Kabbalah Period, my Astrology period, etc. And the thread that ran throughout all the periods was the music.

I've traveled a lot. Spent three years in Spain with my first husband, and my son DeVon was born there. I loved Spain and the Flamenco music and the great people and the food. I think I'd be perfectly happy living in Spain.

Finally got to go to the Greek Islands a while back. I got to meditate in the Cave of St. John the Divine, on the Isle of Patmos, which was quite an experience. I'd love to go back to Greece someday and spend a couple of years there just soaking up the culture.

I've been a professional graphic designer since the 70's when I learned to do everything the old-fashioned way. When computers came along, it sure did make my life easier. I have been writing off and on since I was in high school, but have been involved in helping other people publish their books rather than my own.

I plan to publish a variety of things here…from humorous animal short stories like my first offering, Cat Maintenance, to arcane bits of information that I call my Uranian/Venusian downloads.


Review by: Joel Elman on Aug. 05, 2011 : (no rating)
I am a witness to this true story. I saw the wee bird and watched the miracle of its growth... and my friend Donna feeding it worms and water and stuff and things. This a truly heartwarming story about a warm-hearted woman and the bird she taught to trust her.
