And on this seventh day, I will rest. Which should be done more often. The caterwauling work deadlines of the new year become exhausting with their annual me first and everything else not first.
But first a promised obligation beckons. The obligation was delayed and extended by a flat tire. Probably a slow leak? Aired it up with compressor. The tire service centers do not open until 9 AM. It is Sunday and it is lucky that they are open at all. I intend to be first in line.
So in the meantime, the 2017 bird list was worked on. First sighting posted was a Red Tail Hawk from Friday. Location, upper Fore River in Portland. Flew right from South Portland, across and into the trees to the left. Large bird with a vivid presentation of the red tail. That was a good feel event.
The day turned out to be a classsic case study illustrating the tension between going to do v gotta do.
