Me: hey, cassady, what do you want to be when you grow up?
c: well, my sister's going to be an ornithologist and i'm going to help her with her bird shows.
me: you mean like her assistant?
c: no, i mean like i'm going to be her bird.

comment 20 star 141 Yesterday

Today is my birthday. i'm turning 45 but i always tell the the kids i'm a hundred. won't they be surprised when they find out the truth? the day started with my favorite breakfast (chips and coffee) and it's ending with a walk on the beach with all 4 of my children together. in the middle were lots of songs and hugs and cupcakes and a gigantic vegan mac and cheese which i will probably be eating till my 46th birthday (or my hundred and first, depending on who you ask.)
i feel pretty lucky to be me.

The kids call this driftwood beach. barnacles are everywhere, encrusting parts of trees that look like dinosaur skeletons shaking bony hands at the sky.
i think there are enough fiddler c***s to carry you away, their subway system must be incredible.
i took this picture through a hole in a log by the shore. cassady is writing that she loves me and making fiddlercrabs run through the track she's making in the sand. summer is in full effect, the living is easy.

We shared our dinner with some c***s (on purpose) and some sea gulls (not on purpose) and spent a lot of time collecting about 100 million miles of fishing line so no animals would get it wrapped around their legs, or tentacles, or fins. it was a pretty good day

I've cried so many tears into this river, heart breaks, bad grades, lost friends and family, moving away, and moving back only to discover everything was too different for me to stay. this river carries my heart ache a few miles down to the salty sea, where it mixes with everyone else's and somehow turns them into happy beach days for little kids all over the world. rivers are kinda awesome like that.

So, i used to rehab pelicans, and i used to shove fish right into their floppy gular pouches. they are pretty darn big. we got tons of pelicans that were hurt by fishing boats, and one angry local fisherman even broke a whole bunch of their wings bc he was annoyed and left them there. they look graceful here, but they look pretty funny and awkward when they're not flying. pelicans like fish a lot, so guess they could be aggressive. but over all they are sweet, friendly birds. every once in a while i meet a pelican that isn't afraid of people and i wonder if it's one of the ones i used to feed by hand
