Smoke & Veil

 

Lately, I have been feeling like I have been living in Animal Farm. I hate that damn book! I read it in my infancy. I was twelve, and it was my first year of High School. Yes, back then we started High School at 12 and finished at 17. I loved that book! That is, until my teacher busted my bubble. Class discussions opened my eyes to the fact that this book was about humans behaving very badly. To this day I remember the quote I asked the most questions about in class. “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others”. I hate that damn book!

 

smoke unfurls-
a veil of antics
hides fire

Nesting

Saturday morning in the outdoor plant section of Home Depot was a treat! Look who I met! She was just sitting there, not moving at all. And she was at the edge of the aisle. People on the hunt for plants, barely noticing her. In the shot from behind, you can see a little head and two eyes to the right. I was about two feet away. Workers say she comes back every year and choose a potted plant for her nest.

This is the coolest thing I’ve seen up close. It set my day right!
