Hello, friends. What's been happening in your corner of the world? Any news?
My tidbit: I received the Excellence in Education Award last week where I work. And no I'm not an instructor. I received it in the staff category. But enough about me, what's going on with you?

What the Owls Said

On those nights when the owls are singing
I linger outside attempting to distinguish

Whether the Great Horned owls are
Or the Long-eared owls are
Or the Barred owls are
Or whether they all are
Here to accompany each other,
Filling the night air with
A dazzling chorus of improvisation.

And the Great Horned owl said,
Sing, brothers, of the glories of the night.
And the Long-eared owl said,
Yes, Yes.
And the Barred owl said,
Sing brothers; it is thy birthright.

Here I am, a paltry audience
Trying to write lyrics for
Music that transcends my voice.
