Heron in the rain – November 2019

It was getting dark and had begun to rain so I was wrapping up a photowalk and as I’m sitting in my car texting Eliza this heron lands just outside my car window. I managed to get a few snaps in before he disappeared into the brush.

Finished reading Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A fast-paced read. Would make a great fun movie.

Finished reading Mutation by Robin Cook. ⭐⭐⭐ – Barely three stars, really. Interesting premise but predictable.

Brent Simmons on why he listens to podcasts at 1x. I’d quote some of it, but you should just read the entire thing. He echoes so many things I’ve covered here on the blog over the years.
