Was going to run to the store after work before curfew hit. Stores were already closed. Came back, got out of the car & saw, I kid you not, a mourning dove on a wire and a red-tailed hawk circling behind it.
Hard to tell on the phone resolution, but damn, you can’t make this shit up.
New blog post:
A lot of #LesMiserables adaptations tend to put extra focus on Inspector Javert’s role as Jean Valjean’s persecutor, making it personal. It makes for good drama, but it misses Victor Hugo’s point that the justice *system* is unjust. Javert is only its face.
It’s Not Just Javert. It’s the System.
YouTube: Wasting food during a pandemic so you don’t have to.
“Hey. Human. Yeah, you. Got any food?”

Winderbourne Mansion “is currently abandoned and has no plans of restoration. The site is a photographer’s dream. The property is nine acres with several old muscle cars in the backyard, along with sprawling trees and flowers. It is also located right up against Black Hills regional park with a great view of the water. The interior of the house is littered with old furniture, letters, magazines, and clothes.”
