It's been a while

Which is one part my usual problem with social media: I don't filter well or gracefully, and I have learned to err on the side of silence. The other part is that I've been having a fuck of a time, fibro-wise, but so it goes. Today I Did Things despite the things my body had to say.

It is a great and good thing to have one's books neatly upon the shelf again. And a balm to an ex-library worker's heart for them to be be sorted by subject and roughly alphabetized.

It does occur to me that, in this age of ebooks, it's no longer possible to go judge people by the contents of their bookcases - even me. Before this move I converted roughly half my books to digital copies (the ones I won't miss if I screw up and delete them).

It feels odd.

Despite it being windy and rainy,
it was a good day for seeing the raptors.
I think the wind stirred their spirits a bit.
This batch of photos includes:
the Boobook owl, the Powerful Owl, the Tawny Frogmouth, the Brahminy Kite and the Wedge-Tailed Eagle (which it's still legal to hunt in most states, making it the most persecuted / killed eagle in the world)

Eagle's Heritage is Australia's largest raptor rehabilitation centre.
About an eighth of it is accessible to the public.
The rest is private.
Where possible birds are rehabilitated into the wild.
This section focuses on Ivy the Barn Owl
and the Black Kite (which is not black, but brown).

Due to fairly dismal weather
(yay dismal weather!)
we saw no fairy wrens on this holiday.
But we still got to see some very pretty birds
and one very bond New Holland Honeyeater,
while at The Berry Farm.

We watched the sunset at Prevelly,
on the first night.
We worried the sunset would be pretty boring actually,
but high haze due to smoke burn-off gave it all
a kind of post-apocalyptic feel.
Which was awesome.
