Photo taken by Abby from the Bay Area of California, who was recently diagnosed with Bipolar II. More about her here.

About this photo: This bird was kind enough to let me get close enough to ponder before taking to the air. The juxtaposition of the chain-link fence with the bird taking flight implies a seemingly contradictory set of circumstances. The fence is simultaneously a physical barrier and a platform for takeoff. It makes me think that maybe the runway is already under my feet, if I could only recognize that I am overcoming barriers all the time.
