Letters Never Sent


Letters Never Sent*

I’ve had a number of people who’ve asked why I’ve stopped writing. I actually haven’t stopped writing although I’m definitely writing less in recent time due to increased work load. (Apparently there really are only 23 hours, 56 minutes, 4 seconds in a day – I had been trying to fit sleep in the last 3 minutes and 56 seconds but that wasn’t working since there are not really 24 hours in a day.)

There are thousands of articles I’ve written that I haven’t yet published and perhaps another couple thousand that I’ve published in other venues but not yet here on my blog. I continue polishing, researching, outlining and simply thinking about them in some cases. I tend to like having the articles totally ready before I release them into the wild. This means sometimes I’ll set them aside and come back to them days, weeks, months or even years later. In addition to those I have notes for about another 4,000 articles on the topics of pigs, construction, cottage, butcher shop, small farming and such.

Little Bird Magic

Little bird, little bird…

When I came in the house after work this evening I heard a soft sound, almost like water dripping. I finally found it, there was a little bird up in the cottage front loft trying to fly out the window and beating it’s wings against the screen. I think it was a young sparrow. I gently caught it and carried it down the ladder and then outdoors.
