  • Even hanging upside-down from a Canada thistle and stuffing her beak with thistledown, the goldfinch never stops chittering. #
  • Another cool, Septemberish morning. A chipping sparrow lands on the garden walk beside the porch and gives me a quick, quizzical look. #
  • A large praying mantis at the edge of the porch, near where I sit, turns its head to watch me with unblinking, space-alien eyes. #

  • Red leaves in the yard—the red of spring rather than autumn. The multiflora rose, pruned once again by passing deer, struggles to re-leaf. #
  • All the missing videos at http://t.co/foyFUDuJ ain't my fault; Vimeo is down. See http://t.co/TXjr92b3 (Best of luck to @Vimeo engineers!) #
  • A hummingbird sits on the tip of one of the dead cherry's few remaining twigs, like a fat green leaf with the stem pointing the wrong way. #
  • Join me in helping to send Heather Haley (founder of Visible Verse) to Buenos Aires for Videobardo on @indiegogo http://t.co/rGBVGtFA #
  • A hawk circles over the ridge, higher and higher, until it appears smaller and fainter than the white blood cells criss-crossing my retina. #
