It's cooling off here in Israel. Yesterday I woke up and went for a long walk around the neighborhood. I saw 2 interesting birds. One was the Syrian Woodpecker. I'm about 100% sure of that. The other was an iridescent green bird that looked much like a hummingbird, but a teeny bit larger. I was very close to this bird and watched it with awe, for several moments. Come to find out, I can not get a good ID on this bird. I have 3 bird experts on the case and no one has come up with what it could be. So, I'm pretty sure I've discovered a new bird. And this bird should be named for me somehow.
In other good news, I finally sent off my outline to be read by someone who can dash my dreams, or keep them alive. It feels good to have it out of the house. I've worked for 8 weeks on that outline and I was starting to do some serious wheel spinning. Husbandman and I celebrated by going to our fave pizza place down in the Ziv. See how I'm getting kind of comfy with the lingo?
Newsflash: It's starting to rain a little. This is the day of miracle and wonder. I'm moving closer to the window so I can love this rain up close.
