On the brink of 2012, all things are possible–even a log-cabin creche in which one finds a melding of poultry and hoofed beast. Manger in French is to eat. In English a manger is a trough housed in a stable and used to hold feed or fodder for livestock. In this scene the duck lies down with the lamb. It reminds us all things are possible. All resolutions can be made and kept. We can resolve to stop global warming. We can have world peace.
