Wednesday I went to CNN.com to figure out what congressional objections were being lodged to Mr. Biden's victory in the presidential election.I found instead that a mob had violently taken over our nation's Capitol. This story, including the incumbent president's incitement, occupies the news and our thoughts. I feel strongly opposed to the actions of those rioters and those who aided, abetted and incited them. I
lack any particular detail to add to enliven the dialogue.
Saturday I walked on the Watters Creek Trail. Sunday I walked on the Cottonbelt Creek South Trail and at Story Park. The Sunday walk was particularly pleasant, because I was able to walk as a fairly heavy snow fell. We went a few years with little real snow, though the local average is 6 inches a year. Nine years ago we had an 11 inch snow. Sunday's snow would have been about an inch, but it was too warm to stick.
In the snowy conditions, I saw a Barred Owl high in a tree, as well as a Hermit Thrush standing atop a cut log near ground. It was a grand walk.
Now the work week is back in session. Yesterday when I woke up early I put on the movie "The Glass Bottomed Boat." Those silly Doris Day movies are surprisingly watchable.
I listened to music this morning for a Creative Commons 2020 music awards contest in which I am one of several judges. Finding eligible works in an area as large as Canada has been more of a challenge than I prefer, but I have heard some nice albums. I must finish up my nominations by Friday.
