empty cage

“Use the world of birds as your inspiration today.”

Well, the first creature I heard this morning was a screeching blue jay, so this is an appropriate challenge. Home being in the middle of a pine forest means tons of birds and lots of twittering (real tweets in this case) from pre-dawn to dusk. Two items inspired the results: this year’s Cavallini wall calendar on Birds, and an old bird cage, from my grandmother, who used it as a light fixture in the trees to her home, where I have perched for the last 14 years. When I move on, I shall miss the sound of the birds.
