I'm sure I've said before I feel lucky to see a crow, and then slightly foolish because it is easy to see a crow, and then pleased with myself for being easy to please. It is nice to have a feeling of friendship with an incredibly common bird, especially if they keep improving their reputation for intelligence.
I want to take space to wish my beloved friend Kate a happy birthday. She's known me since I was young and stupid, and she was merely young, and we've watched (and helped and sympathized and baked for) each other for decades now and each other's children too, and I am very much looking forward to celebrating many, many more birthdays of hers.
