“I like the idea of songs sung by those without big voices. You know, small birdsongs that rise above the noise of the city.”
Kyo Maclear, Birds Art Life: A Year of Observation

“If I were flying, I would travel to a perfect place. A place with frosted cakes and beautiful flowers and excellent trees to climb and absolutely no doldrums.”
Kyo Maclear, Virginia Wolf

“It is possible too that I was experiencing something known as "anticipatory grief," the mourning that occurs before a certain loss. Anticipatory. Expectatory. Trepidatory. This grief had a dampness. It did not drench or drown me, but it hung in the air like a pallid cloud, thinning but never entirely vanishing. It followed me wherever I went and gradually I grew used to looking at the world through it.”
Kyo Maclear, Birds Art Life: A Year of Observation
