Birds That Cheered Me in 2020
I know many people who read my posts will agree: what would we have done without birds in our lives this past year?
Perhaps our very sanity depended on them! Without further ado, some photographs follow–all taken in New Mexico–that will always remind me of happy hours on the trails. And a few other photos at the end that I hope you enjoy.
My warmest wishes to you all for a bright, safe and happy 2021. As you gradually emerge into the light, may you appreciate nature, health, democracy, family and friends more than ever.
Also below, a colored pencil drawing I did soon after Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s death. It was between my successful cataract operations in September and October, thus–the world’s colors looked different to each of my eyes. I profoundly admired RBG, and she was very much on my mind as I worked on the drawing over several weeks. May she rest in peace.
