I went outside with my camera this morning hoping to capture some photos of crows. My friend Zach Moores in Kansas City sounded grim in one of his recent posts. He owns Crows Coffee. He feels responsible for his staff; for keeping afloat in troubled waters; and for the small empire he has created of lovely coffee shops and community gathering spots. I wanted to send pictures of the Delta crows to cheer him.
By chance I did not spy any of our majestic crows. But across the meadow in a tall old tree, I saw what I believe to be a pair of robins. With my zoom lens, I captured a few shots of their morning diversions. This harbinger of spring cheered me. I hope it will do the same for Zach.
It’s the twenty-eighth day of the seventy-fifth month of My Year Without Complaining. Life continues.
