Readership has been way up on this blog lately, and I wanted to say thank you for taking the time to read these scribblings. I hope you find inspiration, mirth, and motivation in what you read here.
Lots of random stuff:
I saw two Inca dove this week. I haven't seen them here in several years. Beautiful smaller dove - easily recognized by the burnt red color visible under their wings when they fly.
And a tiny Mediterranean gecko was scarfing mosquitoes near the mailbox - too fast for photos.
I finished reading the Urban Bestiary (finally) and have been reeling from the ideas presented in the last chapter of what seemed a simple book. I am now reading Crow Planet by the same author and finding it equally inspirational.
The National Bike Challenge is going very well - very happy to have joined it - 18 days left!
New Belgium and Bikes
I ordered some used battery packs for building a lithium-ion battery pack for my winter bike. (Next week is National Drive Electric Week - Keith, be ready!)
I learned about a very cool neighborhood revitalization project/movement. Check it out at betterblock.org.
The playa lakes are full again - if you are near the park at Quaker and the South Loop in the evening, check out the island in the middle - it has become a rookery for snowy egrets. Let's build islands in all the playa lakes in town - tiny bird sanctuaries in the middle of our lakes!
Thank you again for reading! May you have health, joy, and blessing!
