Eight Song Split

Thursday evening my wife and I were walking on the Ridgeview Trail at dusk. We saw a bobcat approaching us about 50 yards ahead on the trail.  The bobcat watched us curiously, and then headed off. On Friday, a Facebook memory reminded me of an earlier bobcat sighting some years prior.

Saturday I walked in Glendover Park. I kept circling and circling the park.I saw 18 different bird species. I got good photos of a small Red-Eared Slider turtle, of a Red-Bellied Woodpecker, and of Blue Dasher dragonflies. Later I walked in Green Park and saw 10 more species.

I got a little of the family business I wanted to get done on Saturday done. I feel confident that I will do the rest soon. I read a few more pages of "Sonic Writing", but still have some pages to go. Sunday I attended a WW virtual meeting, and set my local church's service up to play on Youtube live.

My afternoon Zoom call proved to be a no-show. I suppose I should get a green screen.  I walked on the Ridgeview Trail in the afternoon.

I solved a lot of chess puzzles this weekend, having discovered this function of in which one races again time. I also did a competitive version, but it was not as much fun so far as just solving them solo..

Musician Lee Rosevere sent me the tracks from a project we are doing together. We each used the on-line drawing tool Harmony to create four sketches. Then each of us wrote one song for each of the four sketches. This has been a very casual project. Lee sent me his drawings months before I sent him mine. On the other hand, I sent my recordings months before he sent his recordings. The end result sounds good, with two of Lee's tracks really standing out among the set.
