The Years Go Marching By

It’s harder and harder to age in this savage republic. Even as a long-in-the-tooth perpetual adolescent, I’m not in much of a celebratory mood this year, but here are some birthday posts of yore:

2020: bathing beauty.

Wait, I did another birthday Red-tailed Hawk in 2019?

It fell during Kestrel Week in 2018.

2017: tree rings.

{In 2016 I repeated 2013, see below.]

2015, in Dante’s Italian.

Very minimal, 2014.

In 2013, I had some fun scavenging literature.

Skipped 2012 all together.

2011, the first use of Dante.

This blog started in March, 2010.

3.5″ long pocket knife in the center of this enormous stump, presumably a tuliptree, as in the photo in the middle of this post. Sad to see these giants go.

    My old tree has quite a few rings. Also a winter baby. Have a good one!
