I was delighted to see this warbler yesterday on the trail heading home from Evergreen Ponds. The black mask identifies it as a male Common Yellowthroat. Meanwhile, I am adjusting my rhythms to July vacation days here in Maine. I have been sleeping a lot, and letting the disorientation of these open days circle me around to re-orienting my soul.
The last several months have been exhausting. So I have been napping and moving slowly, and watching Netflix. Today, I finally started unpacking a few more boxes–four boxes of books done–and soon we are going to the beach for an afternoon swim in this sunny warm weather. This morning, our next door neighbor brought over a gift of honey from their bee hives–now that is very local honey! Another neighbor introduced us to someone who mows lawns. There is so much still to do to settle in to this home. But first, finding my way back to new rhythms.
