Having stripped bare
Exposed for all to see
The virtues of my soul
The substance of my skin

But shed light upon me
Reveal this sullen veneer
Yet cast in shadows
Nuance of what's sincere

In conversation with +Cilla C this morning, she happened to mention a G+ theme / hashtag / contest that I'd not previously been privy too. #BirdPoker

After doing some searches and reading a few posts, I've discovered that the current incarnation of this is called #NewBirdPoker and it's a weekly thing. Since I seem to be getting into taking pictures of birds these days, why not play along and see how it goes.

This week's theme, Flying and Floating (on alternate days), is curated by +John Wade

Not sure if I'm breaking any rules by posting a shot from the archives but here's one taken a while back which reflects today's theme ... flying. This was taken at Oakville Harbor on the north-west shore of Lake Ontario.

#BirdPoker was created by +Phil Armishaw

The specifics of this headline, or the underlying story, are irrelevant ... outside of proof that it's about politics. The US version, in this example.

My question is ...

Why would this website think that anyone, ever, in their right mind, would need or want a shortcut link to an article's comment section which, with rare exception, are the cesspools of the Internet?

So a couple of weeks ago, this happened. :-D

It had been a couple of years since +Cilla C​ and I had the opportunity to travel back to Montreal and explore. Having made that happen, via train, it's only right that we arranged an afternoon of friendship renewal with the ever charming +Isabelle Fortin​ and her G.

Unlike last time, when it was -25°C, we got to enjoy food and wine and beer and lots of laughter on an outdoor patio.

Two years ago, we made a pie. An apple pie. For Pi Day. We won't be making pie today.

"Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best."
