Meditation 4.5.19 - A Pen and Ink Tangle

A pen and ink doodle meditation in blues and orange and a blurb about vultures.
Dear Henry,

I do love my house in the forest, and I hate to complain, but there are two things I could really do without.

One, "Lake Elliott", the huge collection of water that forms on my front walk every time it rains, I hope to have fixed with the new flower bed configuration (and you thought I was just ambitious).

The second problem is a bit more challenging and I am not sure what to do.  You see, during the Spring mating season, a wake of vultures begin roosting in the trees around the house.  It is unnerving, and this year, the situation has gotten even worse.  They have taken to roosting on the roof.

I discovered this today, when I walked outside on the back deck, trying to figure out what it was that sounded like horses clomping across the roof.

I startled them, they startled me, Ziggy was barking and feathers were everywhere.

My heart has just now returned to its normal rhythm.

I think I will be spending the rest of the day indoors.

xoxo a.d.
