oh what a beautiful morning




i'm finally feeling better after battling a low-grade fever for several days. i think i've got it licked now.
or maybe it's just that the sun came out and it was a glorious morning.
the chickens love hanging out near the horses.
as soon as i let them out in the morning, they run over there.
it's like they're friends. or maybe they just like horse poo.

and the nobel prize for literature 2013 went to alice munro.
oddly, i've never read her.
actually, not so oddly, as i don't often read north american writers.
except jonathan franzen, barbara kingsolver, paul auster and siri hustvedt.
and david foster wallace.

did you know about the bandcamp website?
it's full of cool, indie music. 
like this - something fierce by marian call
or this song - cats and netflix that i suspect is about me.
bandcamp might be myspace for hipsters. 
in a good way.

Maybe the chickens are in awe of the horse's size and maybe they're having a chicken religious moment. Then again, they could be snacking on the bugs stirred up by the horse.
