Heron Island

I just got around to reading this lovely story. Among other things, I like what it says about friendship. Nylin  is willing to let the heron go, but the friendship continues. Ardeid comes back when Nylin needs him, but neither clings to the other, both recognizing that they need to be in their own worlds. Even apart, they will always be there for each other.

I also liked the gentleness of the revenge. No Hitchcockesque bird scene, as I might have imagined. The punishment fit the crime and eliminated the problem.

I have added this story to my mental list of favorites, one to which I will probably return when I crave a dose of feel-good. Thanks to Rick Beck for writing it.
