Monday ~ February 10, 2020

New Yorkers will excuse me for missing my barred owls, fuffed grouse, and snowshoe rabbits, my grosbeaks and deer. I love what you love too. In the city and in the country there is a simple, underlying basis ti life which we forget almost daily: that life is good. We forget because losing it or wife, children, health, friends is so awfully painful, and because life is hard, but we know from our own experience as well as our expectations that it can and ought to be good, and is even meant to be good.

(Edward Hoagland, b. 1932)
