I've gone to the birds. Friends, I'm on staycation. I spend my days watching and sketching birds in the healing garden, planting the fall food crop, and deep learning ASL. Like a fish in a glass bowl, the hearing world is harder and harder to access, so I'm sinking into the visual and kinesthetic world where my senses still bring connection. I'll be back after filling my cup. Wishing you well in the interim! Namaste' and blessings, people!
