Nothing of Note Post

West through the lower desert
I say "nothing of note," but there were a few things to take note of after all:  the beautifully cold and crisp morning, a Black-throated Sparrow, and a Desert Cottontail that slipped under a bush as we passed.  I wouldn't even have noticed the latter unless I'd seen him dive under there.  We also ran into JC and Olivia on the way in; they seemed in fine spirits.  We stood and talked for a while, mostly about Doug Jones's unlikely win in Alabama.  Both JC and I agreed that the Democrats better guard against getting big heads over the victory.

Practice non-attachment even if it means falling off your perch

What dat?
