a couple of crows here at the Treehouse Apartments, that have become
part of our community. They seem to know each and every one of us by
sight, and if the researchers are correct, they have an impression of
each of our personalities.
it’s hard to figure out who the crows are performing for, but you can
sometimes see them actually giving you the eye and checking to see if
you’re paying attention.
I feel very
fortunate to have the time and the mental acuity to observe the animals
and plants that live alongside me. I spent many years being oblivious
to the natural community that we live in. The rest of earths denizens
are fully cognizant of who we humans are and what we are doing, but our
culture is such that other than killing and eating some of the animals,
we are only vaguely aware of some consciousness in our pets.
has been warm and pleasant like it was last January, and I think we’re
going to have another series of spectacular sunsets like I photographed
last year around this time.

Treehouse Apartments Monday Music Fest expanded with the addition of
Margaret Miller, our resident poet, who joined in the creativity and
read some of her poetry.
It was a lot of fun and I look forward to Margaret being a regular part of our Monday get-togethers.
Thursday, the Shasta Blues Society will resume the blues jams after two
weeks of holiday time off. I’m looking forward to playing with John and
Mark and the rest of the musicians that populate Lulu’s for these
Thursday night events.
