Or better yet, here:
“People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.”
Today’s phenological note:
The sparrows around the bird feeder are hypersensitive to criticism this week. Best to just ignore them and let them go about their business. They’ll get over it by next week. Probably just the winter, wearing on their nerves. Lord knows we could all use a break.
