Plainsboro Preserve. Long been on my list of places to hike. Finally made it there yesterday. Definitely worth a trip back when the trails aren’t as muddy and flooded (in spots) and the environmental/nature discovery center is open.
A fellow hiker and I rescued this little bird that was just sitting on the walking trail. (I think it’s a great crested flycatcher.) Didn’t move when I walked right by it. Didn’t react when this kid picked it up. Weird. Maybe it’s ill or injured. Maybe just a fledgling that doesn’t know what to do. Anyway, he put it off to the side, safely in the grass near some bushes. Sometimes you just have to let nature takes it course.
"Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while you shouldn’t have fucked with? That’s me." (Clint Eastwood, Gran Torino) That’s exactly how I feel at the end of this especially stressful and craptastic week. A zombie apocalypse would have been better.
With my brother and sister. Cheat photo from my trip to Florida because today has been hellacious.
Soothing my soul. Sunset by the lake.
"Have a day that matters. Have a day that’s true. A day that’s honest. Not a nice day. You’ll be miserable… Have a day that means something." (Shirley MacLaine, The Last Word)
Flying home from Florida. I’m not a fan of flying for many reasons but I do love being up among the clouds.
