I have a few decades of notebooks. When I can read the writing, I gain insight. For example, I reread and muse about the 1997 version of Patty and note changes. I give thanks when I realize back then I was at the edge of grasping an idea which now I see more clearly. Knowtizing is working for me and mine.
I began thinking about such as I bird-counted on my walk to yoga.
Cormorants. Great Blue Herons. Ospreys. Kingfishers: Fisherbirds.
Lots of mouths to feed, these egg-layers. Real.
Not like the egg-followers or “bot” (automated not human) army
used to falsely inflate Trump’s twitter numbers.
This is so not like my fisherbirds.
They are honorably fishy.
