“What is the pattern that connects? What pattern connects the crab to the lobster and the orchid to the primrose and all four of them to me? And me to you? What is the pattern that connects all living creatures? “

Tiny Worlds
Some call it a weed. I call it perfection.


I was sitting on the beach the other day at a local lake, doing some bird watching. The Seagulls were so funny to watch. If one would pick up an object, the others would immediately want it and a scuffle would commence. While the entire thing was quite comical, what I did find sad was some of the things they were fighting over were plastic bottle caps and rings that washed onto the shoreline. I hoped they weren’t eating them. But I have to say the movie “Nemo” definitely captured Seagulls personalities! If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s a must. So funny. The birds with the orange beaks are called Caspian Terns. They were quite chill and weren’t joining in the seagull ‘games’.
