”The genuine artist is never “true to life.”
He sees what is real,
but not as we are normally aware of it.
We do not go storming through life
like actors in a play. Art is never real life.”

— Wallace Stevens

Annually, the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) gather to celebrate the completion of the year (June 1-May 30) by sharing comradeship, food, stories, awards and introduce the new SCVN board to the membership. This event is always special, this year even more by giving Joan Tedford (“List Lady”) a much deserved SCVN Emerita award. Joan was recognized by Naturalists Debbie Bird, Edi Moore, Heather Murphy and author Frank S. Rose. — kenne

It’s TimeTo Put Up The Quail Crossing Signs   2 comments

Quail Crossing

It’s a frantic time in the neighborhood. We are still waiting for the quail eggs on our patio to hatch, but will running the morning I had to stop twice for quail chicks and adults to cross. This morning’s sightings included chicks about the size of those in the image below. The smallest were having trouble getting up over the curb.

Free As A Bird   Leave a comment

Free as a Bird

You may desire

to be free as a bird, not

understanding your proper 

part within the whole,

meaning your ultimate destiny 

is not in your hands, but

caught in a conflict

between the forces of

freedom and duty.
