for the birds

Today at lunch (outside) a bird flew right past my head and landed on the ground behind my chair. I could feel its wing-wind. I was unimpressed, though - it was a pigeon. Had it been a hawk or a condor I would have called it amazing. I’d like to at least acknowledge our brief interaction, though, which, when I think back on it now, was actually… well, it was something that happened, something which may have been amazing, and yet, very ordinary – no pterodactyl, though.

Meanwhile, in other news, a pack of invading parrots continues to terrorize the neighborhood…
