“ You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on.

Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home ag ...more ”

[close] Welcome to Birds! Eclectus Parrots (Eclectus roratus) For all bird lovers—wrap yourself in the realm of birds and share your experiences while birding! We will read books about and relating to birds, giving us a broader and newer understanding of them at the same time as we discuss species and take in birding tips. At first, birding may seem like a wasted pastime, but if looked at in the right way, reveals an outstanding world that you never thought existed. I hope to explore this world with you and learn from you in a community where we are all into ornithology, so don't hesitate, meander into the realm of feathered creatures that surround us. Eurasian Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus) Eurasian Green Woodpecker (Picus viridis)

[close] Seven Years Later: New Year, New Book, New Blog. I hope this will be a fun stuff group even though it'll sort of also be my only blog. We can do both, right? Will be posted in this group so that you can respond at length to me and each other, and I hope you write more than I do. I'll also post most/some/all on my Author Page though I don't know if Goodreads allows you to answer there.. Would love it if you wrote more than I do.
