Reading Mr. Gwyn by Alessandro Baricco.  Even in translation, his narrative is very interesting. Im an enraptured new fan.  The picture he carves in your mind, via his narration is his writing USP.

The book is also presented very stylishly.  The format is two novellas, and i like the feel of the book, the typography, the double spaced lines everything.  Bellissimo!

Pg. 16 - "He was like one of those horses who, having shaken off the jockey, slow down, dreamily, to a gentle trot, while the others are still bursting their lungs, in pursuit of a finish line and an order of arrival".
A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice Pick! One of Mother Jones's Best Books of 2014! After celebrated author Jasper Gwyn suddenly and publicly announces that he will never write another book, he embarks on a strange new career path as a “copyist,” holding thirty-day sittings in a meticulously appointed room and producing, at the end, brief but profoundly rich portraits in prose. The surprising, beautiful, and even frightening result...

Cool!
 
Flight Pattern
Certain birds have flight patterns that give them away. Almost nothing flaps as slowly as a Great Blue Heron – you can see this from miles away. Learn the long swooping flight of most woodpeckers and you’ll be able to pick them out before they’ve even landed.
    
Crows and Ravens
Flight style can be a great way to identify birds at a distance. Although crows and ravens look very similar, they fly quite differently. American Crows flap slowly and methodically, whereas Common Ravens take frequent breaks from flapping to soar or glide.
Bouncing Through the Air
In flight, finches and woodpeckers rise and fall as they intersperse flapping with gliding. For the tiny finches, this causes them to bounce sharply upwards giving their flight a livelier rhythm than the larger woodpeckers. Sparrows, wrens, and warblers, though they're similar to finches in size, typically fly in a straight and level path.
Different Prey, Different Flight
Accipiters like the Sharp-shinned Hawk usually fly in a straight line, flapping stiffly several times in quick succession and then gliding. Buteos fly more deliberately and often spend time soaring in circles on their long, broad wings.
Coming at You
You can identify several birds of prey even when all you see is a head-on view. Red-tailed Hawks (top left) hold their wings fairly level, although not as flat and heavy as the Bald Eagle (center left). Northern Harriers are buoyant in flight and hold their wings in a V. The Turkey Vulture (top right) also flies with its wings in a V, teetering uncertainly with changes in the wind. The similar Black Vulture (bottom right) has a level flight profile.
Many small birds, particularly finches, have bouncy, roller-coaster trajectories caused by fluttering their wings and then actually folding them shut for a split second. Other little birds, including wrens, warblers, and many sparrows, fly in a straight path with a blur of little wings.
Birds of prey have their own distinct styles. Red-tailed Hawks and other buteos fly with deep, regular wingbeats or soar in circles on broad wings. Accipiters like the Sharp-shinned Hawk give just a few stiff flaps and then glide. Falcons fly with powerful beats of their sharply pointed wings. The White-tailed Kite often hovers, wings beating, pointed into the wind.

This is awesome!
 
"Blue Hour at the Beach"
Kruse Park, Muskegon, Michigan.

After the great response you've given me the last several days, I am a little apprehensive about posting another photo and risking a negative reception or worse yet, no reception at all. I really do like this one though, and I think you will too. In the realm of photography, the "blue hour' is the period of twilight in the morning or evening when it is neither full daylight or full darkness, but hovering on the edge. This is a great time to capture some really dramatic photos. I hope you think this one fits the bill.
Feel free to share!

Introduction
Geek, tech lover, love good design wherever i see it.  It may be functional such as the simplicity of a safety pin, or something really beautiful..  In my mind both have equal roles to play..

Humorous, a voracious reader interspersed with self deprecating wit, and loads of philosophy.. Esoteric studies fascinate me.. :)

I also consider myself an "eternal student"
