Picture of the Day
February 22, 2019



was a
day of
wings, first
a meeting at
audubon house
where rehabbed
birds do their time in
cages for their own pro-
tection. we met in the old
basement, interrupted by a
staffer who tumbled down the
steps, rode off in an ambulance.
it's been all ground travel so far
but time and money forced me into
the air for the final leg back to seattle,
snow below, pink suffused sunset above.
a couple of days ago i enjoyed talking with
a stranger on the train from baltimore and to-
night i closed my laptop, which prompted my
seatmate to close hers and we whiled away the
long descent in pleasant conversation. these pages in
my notebook are speckled wings to fly me back in time.
