A feather in the proverbial cap of a grounded idiot savant about to take off. Like spotless laces on muddy sneakers, this deserves a little looking into.
Actor Tom Hanks:
Our destiny is only defined by how we deal with the chance elements to our life. That is the embodiment of the feather; here is this thing that can land anywhere, and it lands at your feet.
Actor Sally Field:
Part of the picture is about fate. The feather blows in the wind and touches down here or there. Was it planned or was it per chance?
