Leisa & I nibbled on mountain ash fruits & took in that feeling of being on top of the world in this odd, magically beautiful place... That's a huge chunk of quartz that I'm leaning on--you can see bits peeping out from the hills in the 360 degree view from the top of Sam Knob, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.

This week I saw a little dogwood tree crammed with what I think were starlings--there were more birds than leaves on the tree. I knew it would happen, and it did--a huge burst of wings as they darted upward in a flash. I don't think I could describe the sound it made. I was standing only about 20 feet away. Wow.
Which of the birds decide when and where to go? Is there a leader? What if they truly move as one being?

Look what arrived via the mailman today! The one little luxury I decided to indulge in this fall is buying a few books of poems, that can't be found at the library, etc. Any other material goods, like clothes, will be from the thrift stores.
