But wait



Short Grass Prairie
Colorado is still beautiful and yet you shouldn't move to Denver. The traffic is quite terrible. I took this picture at the end of May at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Nat'l Wildlife Refuge. I did not see any bison but I saw a slew of prairie dogs that whistled about my frightening approach and a buck browsing in a stand of brush who was far less concerned about me. It was hot but much better than waiting for two hours at the airport for my mom to arrive.

Listen
Podcast recs by the thoughtful poet-blogger Elan. One in the comments section: two British women discuss popculture srslypod.com. This turns out to be the very posh sounding Caroline Crampton and Anna Leszkiewicz who are podding for the New Statesman. I feel I should know what that publication is but I don't so there's something else to learn.

Charm and More
These are just lovely. And there's more pretty stuff for sale on the site -- ooh! aah!

Sinking In
After a dry spell I have found a big fantasy novel to sink into -- The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang. The world is adjacent to ancient Chinese geopolitics and it starts with our protag trying to get into the most exclusive military academy. Things are moving along nicely. So excellent to have tasty fiction look forward to!
