a quest

Last week was the tall one's birthday. Between pizza and cake, I sent him and his girlfriend on a quest. Find me a feather, I said. They searched the woods, but reported there were no feathers to be found. They brought me these beauties instead:



But then the other day I was walking, after the rain had thinned the snow somewhat, and behold, feathers everywhere. They were hiding just below the surface of the snow, maybe, waiting to be revealed? Or was there a scuffle after the rain fell?

Me too. I like going on them, and it turns out I also like assigning them :-P

Now I will see bracket fungus as a form of tree-feather.

Turns out those bracket fungi have all been attempting to give trees wings.

The turkey tail fungus in the first photo really do look like handy shelves for a very diminutive person. Very tiny books or dinner plates could go on them.

I love the treasure they collected for you! :)

Those feathers might have been waiting all winter for you to find them.

That's what it felt like! There were so many of them, too...

Any idea what bird that stripey feather belonged to?

Not really--maybe a pileated woodpecker, since they live in the woods and have black and white?

It's a cool-looking feather, whatever it is.

Last night, a woman asked me if she could read to me while I drew her portrait.

The Last Jew Of Treblinka.

I made an update about it and other things.
