Blackbird Landing On Swan Boat Did Not Lead Wife & I To Underworld

I was on a Swan Boat today in a Boston park.

The boat has a big swan built on it and behind the swan is a young person paddling the boat for the tourists.

The boat swings around a small pond in the park. Across the middle of the small pond is a replica of London Bridge.

Approaching the bridge replica this afternoon, a blackbird landed on the front of the boat.

I said to my wife that maybe the bird had landed there to direct the young man paddling the boat to steer us to the underworld. I suggested that the underworld may lie on the other side of the London Bridge.

All this is what I felt I could hear the bird whispering to me after it assumed its perch.

The wife is used to hearing me say these things and we had a conversation about what the chances of all this really were. We discussed the pros and cons of my assertion.

As is often the case, the wife was right. We passed under the bridge and were still in the land of the living.

I’m still holding out hope that the ghost of Paul Revere will give us a tour of Boston. I think John Adams mentioned something about this in my dream last night.
