A Timely Cormorant
On top of all that, when I began visiting a few other blogs my computer had a massive crash so I had to reinstall everything. I keep my files in a different place, so only the operating system was affected. but that means reinstalling all programs too. A pain. I guess I can think of it as a bit of spring cleaning.
The cormorant is much more fun than all of that. I was a little surprised to see it sitting there so early this year, considering it's still kind of cold. I was glad to see it though. They're so fun to watch. And as long as there are only the two or three I usually see then they won't gobble up all the fish in the lake.
Just to change the subject and give everyone something interesting to think about, I was thinking about this late spring we've been having. I've been wondering if it really is as late as we think. Last year it came so much earlier, but so did Easter back then. This year Easter came about half a month later and so did the green and warmth. I checked.
So I've been wondering if it's maybe not the spring that's late, but maybe it's our linear calendar and way of thinking that's early. I think it's something to think about, and maybe it deserves some further investigation. What do you think?
