"If it's Tuesday, it must be tumblr . . . " Week No. 31

Words In Our Beak’s goal is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in a rooftop urban garden in New York City, my story is told in the voice of Cam, a female cardinal, who visits it. Words In Our Beak is directed to children and adults who are curious about birds, and want to learn about them from a unique perspective. The book includes hundreds of images of flora and fauna, links to movies, as well as to informative narratives that have been created by the author.  Now in Apple’s iBooks store @ https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/words-in-our-beak/id1010889086?mt=11

Yesterday afternoon, in my urban garden, "my" visiting cardinal and one of "my" visiting finches were having quite the conversation over their lunch! The focus of their discussion was Pablo Picasso of all people! And why not? Did you know, dear reader, that Picasso once said, "Everyone wants to understand painting. Why is there no attempt to understand the song of the birds?

It's amazing to hear what birds have to say, and I look forward to eavesdropping on their chatter today, as you may have surmised from the Virtual Stories (garden themed movies) which are in my Vimeo Library) but, I'm also mindful that today is Tuesday, so Juan V will be coming soon to work with me in my garden! Hopefully we will find that I've conquered the problems Juan V discovered when he was here last time!

Meanwhile, since that today is Tuesday, it (also) must be tumblr in TLLG land, and without further ado here is the link to take you there!
