Bird of Paradox
The Seasoning of Birdie McInnes
Released: October 2021
Life as Paradox
Poor Birdie. After a rough start at birth, life was idyllic for his first half-decade. Then Birdie’s situation changed. His family moved to a new home, and he enrolled at Our Lady of Perpetual Sorrow, a Catholic school in Portland, Oregon. Birdie would come to learn the yin and yang of life, the pendulum between the poles of providence and misfortune. Birdie would realize that life was a paradox and that his destiny would be determined by his own reckoning, for better or worse.
