  1. β€œThe 11th is the new moon, but this is the last moonrise of the first moon of 2021 that I will see.” Tim – this sounds like a brilliant opening to a book!!! Another stellar presentation. Now, I know for certain that you are an owl whisperer.

    • Thanks, Rebecca. I hadn’t thought of that as an opening for a book. This is one of the best opening lines I’ve read in a book: “He knew at once it was a human, when he took it from the baby who was sitting on the floor chewing it.” Arnaldur Indridason “Silence Of The Grave”.

      I think the owls are getting ready to lay and sit.

      • I have never heard about Arnaldur Indridason before and now that I’ve looked him up, he has many books. Thank you for the introduction, Tim!!1 Have just placed him on my to be read pile.

      • If you read the Inspector Erlendur series it’s best to start with Jar City and read them in order. I love his writing. I have read all the Erlendur books plus one or two others.

    • Thanks, Gabriela. A song about the owl and the moon? Hadn’t thought much about it. However, I have often thought about a song for when the cranes are gone. But I’ve never gotten around to writing it.

  2. Lovely nocturnal trio! I’m imagining your owl at night, hooting at the moon, sorry. πŸ™‚ That delicate crescent…one of my favorites I rarely see… or sunsets…or owls. So…Thank You!

    • Thanks, Mary Jo. The owls do hoot through the night. They are especially vocal starting about 4:00 am. Often they are in different trees around the property and we get hooting in surround sound. The skunks are starting their courtships. It’s been a little pungent the last few mornings.
