Blog post, "Rulers of the Game"
The rulers of the game were playing one thing and the other children were playing another. Kind of. Playing a stealing game is super easy. It is not a complex. There can be mayhem, intrigue, and fun, but it is fleeting. Kind of. And in the “kind of” is the conflict. And actually, a prolonged game of “who has the most” will often end in angry tears and “no fair” wails.

New post!
On our way back from our hike, just as we were leaving Sligo Creek, we heard the kee aah call of a red shouldered hawk calling to his mate. She flew ahead with grasses collected in her talons. He continued his swooping arcs probably looking out for crows. We stopped, turning and looking up — their habitat is one of tall trees and water and that’s where we were. Behind us was the creek, edged by trees, and ahead of us was the Parkway and the hill that would take us back through the apartment complexes to our school.
