For Wordless Wednesday.
Song sparrow, I think, here.
For the Daily Prompt: core.
The trees are the core of the forest. Or maybe the core is the earth, the sky, the sun, the rain, the wind, the moon, all together….
I am walking in my neighborhood without earbuds (5).
My neighbor bird takes off again. I catch her with my camera, barely.
And she lands again.
I took this yesterday, for photrablogger’s Mundane Monday #117. One of our local residents hopped the fence and quietly entered the shade, facing the road. Nearly invisible in plain sight.
We are in open enrollment for health insurance in the US. Meaning that they all are going up in cost and they are cancelling plans and offering new ones. And advertising: pick a plan right for you!
What the hell does that mean?
It means that all of the plans exclude things. Oh, well, aromatherapy…. that’s what you are thinking if you are not a US citizen. Of course the plan doesn’t cover aromatherapy or crystal healing or fringe treatments….
Well, no. I had to choose between two plans when my daughter was 17, that is, two years ago. I could choose the one that covered cancer OR the one that covered pregnancy. Uh, yes, that is correct. One EXCLUDED pregnancy healthcare and the other EXCLUDED cancer healthcare. For me and my children.
Which would you choose?
My mother died of cancer at 61 and my sister at 49. My daughter was not dating yet. Observing.
So we picked cancer.
I photographed the crows out on a walk the other day… how many does it take to make a murder?
