I don't know if I ever actually saw this or if I just heard about it, but:

Abby had, at her desk at work, a sign that read HOPE IS THE THING WITH FEATHERS with a vulture perched beneath it. Or maybe on it, that seems more likely.

Which, I just now realised, is why references to 'the thing with feathers' always make me think of vultures. I suspect this was not actually Emily Dickinson's intent, but there it is.

i miss you, abby.
