So here I am puffing on some tasty Dakini Kush on my porch, enjoying the low 80s lull in a 90+ degree humid heatwave, set up a bird feeder given to us by my girlfriend's mom an hour or so ago. We live in an urban environment but are adjacent to a park, so we actually have a backyard. After spilling birdseed everywhere (yeah, I used the DK before starting to get properly motivated, you see) I took a moment to actually think about the damn creatures this food is for, and it kinda blew my mind to suddenly hear all of their calls and sounds around me). I've known passionate birders but never found the appeal, yet now I feel this sudden appreciation for birds. I'm curious to see if this carries over tomorrow and later. Well, I did see a hawk swoop down and pluck a shrieking rabbit last summer, that was pretty awesome. So yeah, what epiphanies or (re)discoveries have you experienced?
