Diary 65

Friday, May 22nd

Today our “president” distinguished himself by demanding that places of worship should open immediately. Pastors in California apparently agreed, and some shop owners in Kentucky have refused to serve shoppers who wear masks. We’ll see how that works out.

The picture here is of a small snake that was basking in today’s sun as I took a walk. He’s just slithering away (I’m a bit slow with the camera) but I wanted to include this less than satisfactory picture because it does show how elusive nature can be. Blink and you’ll probably miss it.

Life’s like that, too. 

The same applies to the magnificent small bird that came to splash in the garden bird bath a little later. I missed the picture. But I shan’t ever forget that alert and beautiful little creature, and the way it moved.
