19 Years! :-)


Wow, can't believe I haven't blogged in over a week! (Actually... I can believe it! Busy time of year!) But today's our 19th anniversary and I'd planned to post one of our wedding photos here. But for reasons known only to itself and the gremlins who enjoy messing with electronics, my scanner won't interface with my OS. So... maybe I'll get it working on another day and will stick the photo in here somewhere!

Meanwhile, here's my latest
digital photo... a gorgeous male mountain bluebird. (His wife keeps trying to fly into our house through various windows, and BW is convinced this is really good mojo; the bluebird of happiness trying to deliver good news or some such. But I think she's just a very baffled bluebird!) :-D

(UPDATE: I've replaced the original photo with this more recent, much closer one! And while the female bluebird never made it into the house, a magpie spent the night in our garage and had to be ushered out Sunday morning! LOL Oh, and our scanner still isn't working, but we'll get to it)...

The bluebird carries the sky on his back.

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.

~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
