Dear readers,

Many of you over the years have commented on the grace and beauty of my dog Angie. It is with great sadness that I must announce to you that she passed away on Tuesday night. Words cannot express my devastation. How could i let my butterfly angel fly away?

The mirror is broken and i cannot see a way forward for this blog. i really appreciate the small group of loyal readers that have seen fit to populate these pages with their poetry of spirit. After all, it's all about spirit, isn't it? But when the spirit flies away--only shattered fairyland glass remains.

My beak always makes such sharp shadows.

Such beccal considerations are frequent in self-conscious birds and, as it turns out, gawky teenagers. Luckily, most feathery homeowners don't give a hoot (i'm speaking figuratively, since the literal sound of the late-on-his-mortage-payment owl certainly crossed your mind) about light and shadow.
