Each idea planted
yet not the first
is a new beginning
forming the orientation
for the next step
without direction
creating a path
with each step
of unfoldment.
Each step
like an idea
leads to another.

“People constantly change their story…

however subtly or grossly falsified, constitute our hold on reality
and are the closest thing we have to truth.”

The Jesuits had performed tens of thousands of baptisms and also become the region’s most powerful social and economic force. But the tide carried them no farther north than the Pimería Alta, home of the upper Piman Indians.” — Read more . . .

The wings of this adult make a high buzzy trill in flight.
The rufous is known for their extraordinary flight skills,
flying 2,000 mi during their migratory transits.

Wild turkey # 9

Sounded a yelping warning,

I was in her sight.

Maybe a decoy

No sign of other turkeys,

Yelping continues.
