I realize that I never held my October one card draw; sorry about that! It was a very busy month for me personally, and I just ran out of time! But the birds are getting cranky at me, so here I am, good servant that I am!

In case you were wondering what's so awesome about starlings, here's a new video currently going viral of a starling murmuration. :)

Interestingly, October was the month of the sparrow this year. You might have expected crow, or raven, or even Canadian goose, but it was sparrow that kept fluttering into view. These small, everyday birds are a constant reminder that everyone has value, everyone has something to offer the larger community. They are benevolent household spirits, reminding us to be gentle with ourselves and others and that a clean house is far less important than a loving home. As we swing into a season often ripe with stress and judgement, I hope we can all hold on to this message and keep light in our hearts, letting our heavy burdens slip from our shoulders.

November's one card draw will be this Tuesday, the 15th! I will do another full day of readings, and have a special incentive, so stop by!

Oooh, the 15th is the day I get to register for next semester. I wonder what the birds will have to say about it :)

And don't worry about October, I think it was a really busy month for a lot of people.

For such tiny little birds, sparrows are loud! One morning, a few years ago, I heard little claw-noises on my bedroom air conditioner. I tried to lift the edge of the curtain gently, to see what was there without disturbing it. I got a glimpse of a little brown sparrow, who immediately took off with an earsplitting TWEET! (and pooped on my air conditioner on takeoff, of course). The following year, one of the windows on the porch accidentally got left open about two inches, and a family of sparrows came in and built their nest right over the front door. When the eggs hatched, even the tiny hatchlings created a racket out of all proportion to their size. (After they left, we made sure to keep the porch windows closed.)

And inside large stores with high ceilings, you often hear and see sparrows flying around and tweeting their little feathered heads off indoors...
