every year around this time, the turkey vultures return to this street for two or three weeks.
they camp out in a spruce grove just west of my home. they are massive birds with wingspans of five to six feet!!
"There are some good things to be said about walking. Not many, but some. Walking takes longer, for example, than any other known form of locomotion except crawling. Thus it stretches time and prolongs life. Life is already too short to waste on speed. I have a friend who's always in a hurry; he never gets anywhere. Walking makes the world much bigger and thus more interesting. You have time to observe the details." edward abbey
