Birds and Writing

My basement office has a window with a view of our bird feeders, so I can take writing breaks by watching the birds . . . our regulars – - a red-bellied woodpecker, downy woodpecker, cardinals, titmice, nuthatches, sparrows, mourning doves . . . yesterday, much to my surprise I spotted birds that I’ve only ever seen in fields, certainly not in backyards– red-winged blackbirds and brown-headed cowbirds!  I emailed my daughter-in-law re climate change and the appearance of those birds. “Well,” she replied, “I guess we’ll worry when you start getting penguins.”

    I really enjoyed the Scype conference last night with the Infrared Tent Book Club. Your command of your subjects is monumental. Thank you for sharing your writing process with us and your insights on Stanton and Anthony. We are priviledged to have the benefits of their tireless work on behalf of American women.

In light of the shenanigans that politicians are pulling now, it is most important to remain vigilent and to continue to protect our rights. All best wishes, Lynn Patti
