I have always been fond of the morning, it's my favorite time of day, I couldn't sleep in to save my soul, it doesn't matter how little sleep I might get I would feel gypped if I wasn't present for the morning even if it means just coffee in the garden. The mornings have been wonderfully cool, some with clouds and raindrops. I went with some friends to cloud lake to see a rare, I mean, very rare, Ascitic Loon who some how lost its way and ended up here.
Oh gosh a rainbow cloud, really. One of the woman that I went with is an avid birder who had the skinny on the loon sighting and is also a haiku-ist she recited a poem she wrote about the loon and now thought she needed to write another to include the rainbow cloud. I suggested she include a unicorn and my little pony. I'm not sure why I always think of rainbows as cornball. I think they have been overused in the wrong way, admittedly it is beautiful and raining way up there.
I know you wanted to see the loon but I always get stuck on the herons and egrets. I admitted to my new birder friend that I was not a real birder, I just love them all (well not that mockingbird making all the noise outside my house) so most of them.
Here it is, a long, LONG way from home, tucked in and sleeping with a light rain coming down. I'm sure I would have overlooked it as another loon or grebe if it was not pointed out, still it was interesting and being with friends who know how to linger was the best part.
Here we are finishing up July 2013, I'm making the best of it since there wont be another in the history of forever and I hope you are too.
Much love, Ro
On jewelry news.. I'm making earrings and quietly adding them to etsy, thank you so much to those of you who have snatched them up, hearted them, making me feel like I count in the ever expanding et sea.
