Yesterday’s Phenology: A march sort of day. Sunny, and a bit warmer, but breezy, so a bit colder. That sort of day. Went for a long walk with Flynn in the afternoon, and was followed by a murder of crows, perhaps about a hundred or so, a boisterous lot. We pretended to ignore them, as they were dying for our attention. I may also have seen a hawk, also ignoring the crows as best he could. Though the last few days have been not so cold, there are still scraps of snow here and there to remind us of winter.

Song of the day: Dean Glenn Hubbard, Every Breath You Take

every year we sit around the hearth with big bowls of smoking bishop, and read the christmas classic…


Yesterday’s Phenology: If you are looking for a wintery day, today was pretty good. All the sidewalks nicely coated with ice. An icy wind gusting up to 30 mph. Snowflakes falling here and there, and blowing across the icy street in currents. Winter.

Song of the Day: Prokofiev, Troika

Happy Bloomsday!

June 16th is Bloomsday, the day celebrating the life of James Joyce and the events of his novel Ulysses, which takes place on June 16th. Have I read Ulysses? No. But this year I plan to pick it up. In fact, I pick it up today, Bloomsday.
Pictured is my old copy of another work by Joyce. I do like the old books, yes I do.
