A small and passing thing . . .

Just to let us know that the Shadow is a passing thing, this bright cardinal was kind enough to let me get within a couple of feet as I kept snapping shots of him today down by the lake on my walk break:

Obviously, he wanted all of you to see him and remember . . . there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.


I had the good fortune to have the wonderful company and awesome conversation of [personal profile] ithiliana and [livejournal.com profile] aprilkat during dinner tonight. I was supposed to go with them tomorrow to the Women's March on DC, but it's a little too big for me, and I'm anxious about the press of crowds, Metro hi jinx, and, you know, bathroom access, and just being wrecked, so I've opted to go to the smaller local march in Annapolis tomorrow. And seeing the bay there will be the opposite of stress. I didn't get out to the bay once last year, so tomorrow I can combine civic activism and self-care in one trip. \o/

Oh gosh, I wish I'd seen this post yesterday. I would have tried to go with you to the march in Annapolis. I did not go to the huge march in DC for the same reasons you listed for yourself.
