This card uses the Technique Junkies Telescoping Card technique.

The sentiment is computer-generated. I took the quote from a Maya Angelou poem. The cage and bird suggested the quote. My bird has slipped his cage.
I am an Okie transplanted from endless, rolling plains where snow is a novelty and some approximation of English is spoken, to Québec, where Winter and the month of July are the only two seasons, mountains and forests stop up the view in all directions, and French is the language.
