On a recent birding cruise, I came upon two unexpected sights. First the appearance of long tendrils of smoke emitting from the treetops and down the centre of the road. Not smoke, it turned out but bugs. Swarms of bugs.

Then I noticed a number of ripples in the watery ditch at the side of the road. Muskrat!

Can’t say I found many birds, but the outing was successful thanks to the unexpected.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
