Oh um, I'm still here! Making books on video and watching the flowers bloom.
I was videotaping in my art room late this afternoon and one of the big flocks of parrots zoomed by. Squawking and screaming. Their winged shadows literally moving across these sunlit walls. I ran outside, but missed their flight maneuvers. This happened a few more times. Parrot games!
And the epis presented me with a double bloom this morning.
And last week a band of racoons were cavorting under my bedroom window at 3 a.m. I sat up in bed and leaned into the window sill to talk to them. I feel lucky to be surrounded by city wildlife. At times I feel like I'm in a Beatrix Potter movie.
