This morning is chilly with bright sunlight. While the winter has had temperatures well above average, today’s are just about at the seasonal norms.
Well the past few days have been pretty disturbing. I guess I should not have been surprised to see the vast difference between how settler extremists were treated as opposed to BIPOC protestors. I was reminded once again of why I was raised to tell none about my Native identity and why there was so much pressure to assimilate.
Here’s a haiku from December and a photo from early autumn. We haven’t seen turkeys in our yard for a while and I miss them. We still need to be heedful of them on our country roads.

Please do take care of yourselves and be well in these mad times.

I see dozens of wild turkeys each day that I walk the mile down the driveway to the mailbox here. They are interesting to watch in their flock behavior.
They can be very aggressive but have not been so with us. I love to watch them, their keen intelligence so different from ours.
Things will be better under Biden. Things would be better under almost anybody, considering what a fiend Trump is.
Yes, we have hope. We must, however, address the deep threats rather than just moving along in some sham agreement. Here’s hoping!
Was watching everything unfold from over here, in utter disbelief. Though maybe it’s been a long time coming. Hope you can emerge into a more peaceful and becalmed America soon.
Andy, it has been a long time coming. We are still fighting the Civil War. The next few days and months promise to be dangerous, with no real end to the deep conflict in sight.
