Night Birds

The lectures on Beowulf and bestiaries were fantastic tonight. There is a medieval music concert at 5:15 pm tomorrow in Keller Hall, and the final lecture by Linda Seidel on “The Mysterious Maker of a Medieval Masterpiece: Gislebertus of Autun — Doer or Donor?” is at 7:30 pm in Woodward Hall.

Real and figurative night birds were out tonight as we made our way off campus. A young woman was writing messages on the sidewalk outside Woodward Hall. Another group of young people were fighting with light sabers on Johnson Field, and I got the photo of the little bird hopping around on the wall under the light of the physical plant building while I was waiting for Laurie to retrieve stuff from her office.
