Hi Fionnuala,

Deep in the Snow Mountains lives a bird called the cold-suffering bird that, tortured by the numbing cold, cries that it will build a nest in the morning. Yet when day breaks, it sleeps away the hours in the warm light of the morning sun without building its nest. So it continues to cry vainly throughout its life. The same is true of human beings.

----LETTER TO NIIKE (WND, pg 1027)

It's called Kankucho bird.

Hi Fionnuala,

If you want to look for Gosho, please go to http;//www.sgilibrary.org

Hi Fionnuala,
I sincerely wish you success in your Summer Course. We must win!

Hope this helps,
