How far we will fly soon, from lush, weedy, buggy Dane County, Wisconsin.
Soon, we will be continuing this caregiving-caretaking gig in the hot, dry golden Central Valley of northern California.
My colleague knows we will be traveling, but cannot imagine how or how far.
When I find her sniffing her carrier, I know she KNOWS -- and disapproves. When thie Tortoise Cat naps, she dreams of flying after taunting robins, I imagine. I doubt she has dreamed of soaring with metal wings.
Still, we revel in today's ordinary marvels here and now, no matter what.
This Dane County, Wisconsin backyard boasts a "native plant area" -- a.k.a. the weed sanctuary.
