Place, solitude, silence

"A person wielding a fifty-ton digger in search of coal will learn quite different lessons from one who wields a pair of binoculars in search of warblers," writes Scott Russell Sanders in one of his many fine books. He might have said that we learn different lessons when we travel by car, by bike, by foot. We don't often find what we are looking for, but we invariably find what our tools and our habits equip us to see. See this week's Musing.

Again, a bit of Anne's cyber art to brighten the day. We live half a world apart, and these arrive through cyberspace like beautiful migrating birds.
