“We all seek to be loved, to connect with other beings. It feels good to be loved. Rejection, though, is also a significant part of life. It’s a significant and painful and sad part of life. In ‘Two Birds’ I examined rejection. I’m not sure how birds actually feel about rejection, but I’d guess that they experience it as a kind of sadness in the same way as you or I do. And even if I learned that birds don’t feel sadness at being rejected, I would feel it for them.”
