i went for a walk with my mother this morning at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary this morning and then we somehow ended up in the Ladner Farmer’s Market which had probably double the normal population of Ladner shoved into a two-block radius. It was great.



The above is a panorama I took from the lookout tower facing west - off to the extreme left is Deltaport; in the right you can see North Vancouver on the horizon.

Not many birds at this time of year; ducks, Canada geese, some chickadees, and a few blue herons. Some old dude was saying he saw a bald eagle up a tree but that’s pretty common in the area too.

All in all, I can tell you that I’m not cut out for birding.

Oh, and I was outside for 90 minutes (with sunscreen) and I didn’t burn too badly. A win.

over the long weekend, I had a brief spurt of inspiration to maybe write a Valentine's Day outtake for Hands of Clay, and got 900 words in before i wrote myself into a corner that made me lose the buzz. Work today was a creative energy suck so I had nothing left to give once I got  home, but maybe I'll try tomorrow.

One of the things that I'm finding slightly... worrisome? bothersome? is that I don't have more stories in my head at this moment. I'm focusing on Hands of Clay and there are percolations in the background for my other MCU stories (er, none of which I've updated recently), but nothing new is really sparking any inspiration. None of the new TV shows are catching my attention, and I haven't been to any movies recently (yes, I know, I need to see Star Wars). I'm also slightly worried that Captain America: Civil War will actually kill me. Or maybe break my heart. Only a few months left before we know for sure.

Anyway, coming back from my creative hiatus this weekend and see how things go from there.
