Summary: "Thirty years ago my older brother, who wasnbsp;nbsp;ten years old at the time, was trying to get anbsp;nbsp;report on birds written that he'd had three months tonbsp;nbsp;write. It was due the next day. We were out at ournbsp;nbsp;family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchennbsp;nbsp;table close to tears, surrounded by binder papernbsp;nbsp;and pencils and unopened books on birds,nbsp;nbsp;immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then mynbsp;nbsp;father sat down beside him, put his arm around mynbsp;nbsp;brother's shoulder, and said, 'Bird by bird, buddy.nbsp;nbsp;Just take it bird by bird.'"
