Tree Watch

a few weeks ago in the sun

It is overcast and chilly out today and the snow from Thursday has largely melted away. The daffodils closest to our building have several inches of green above the dirt. The spring feels very close now with still a bit of natural light when I leave work.

I wish it was a bit brighter out today to inspire me in a bit of duck photography- their bright breeding plumage is evident even to me and their elaborate seduction moves are very funny. I’ll swing by the lake a bit later if the rain holds off.

this might be a good bird watching “patch” but my neighbors also like to stand here and fish

For once in my adult life I am not job hunting, house hunting, or mate hunting. I have never been this relaxed before about my personal situation- of course I am not feeling very relaxed about our government and political forces. But with a dull homelife, turning outward seems both possible and much more effective.

    1. Thanks Margery! I was thinking of this quote actually “Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.” Gustave Flaubert. and not feeling sorry for myself at all.
