vultures flying low

Today I unpacked, sorted, and organized. I found some things I hunted, but continue to hunt a few replaceable things. The months of having my life boxed during renovation and repair exacted only moderate toll.

I went for a walk at Brockdale Park,where turkey vultures flew low and eastern phoebes looked out from atop bare branches. I did not see any pelicans, and I could not make out what species of warblers or finches flew by in little patterns.

Now I am winding down, listening to music from the 23 Seconds netlabel.
