Wonderful words/memories. It was a busy week for me. I refilled the bird feeder yesterday. In between my morning and afternoon nap, I noticed several birds coming to my feeder. Birds I saw included red finch, yellow finch, black-capped chickadee, red-bellied woodpecker, hairy woodpecker, dark-eyed junco and northern cardinal.

I feel that each of these gestures carries importance well beyond the effects our senses report to us. I count on you to do exactly what you're doing, and I work in my own way to support the ecology in my corner of the city. It's not about making massive, world-changing moves, but about each of us entering into and maintaining sane relationships with our environment. That's how it looks to me, at any rate …


I think you--and we--can make a big difference. Thank you so much for this beautiful piece to remind me that it matters, all of this, how we live and share and work together.

Brent, there's almost nothing more satisfying than keeping our backyard birds happy. This morning, I noticed the birdbath had gone dry. By the time I got back to the house after refilling it, at least three or four robins and several goldfinches were in the water.

Jennifer and Shoney, thanks for your good words. It does seem like each of us can do something to keep the world sane.
