The Good Wife


Proud


It's fitting, she thinks, that her sacred animal is the peacock. The bird is such a proud little creature, always parading around with its richly colored feathers spread wide for all to see. Rich blue and purple, stunning gold and emerald and turquoise - colors befitting a queen. The peacock even has a crown to match.

Yes, others mock the peacock. Too loud, they say, obnoxious and fussy. And so showy, so vain. Why not be delicate, why not be calm and quiet and docile?

But the proud, beautiful creature holds her head high, because that's all she can do.
