Ships Passing

Wednesday, January 17, 2007
Now that Letters From Eden is out and rocketing off the shelves at bookstores everywhere, The Zickster is finding herself even more in demand as a speaker. This morning, before the sun had a chance to wipe the sleep-drool off his face, JZ was on the road, headed to two events in The Sunshine State, one at Ding Darling NWR (where we both spoke last winter) and one in Naples at The Southwest Florida Birding Festival.

This is how things will look for JZ in sunny FL. Here in rural-most SE Ohio, it's 16 degrees and the grass is crunchy underfoot.

In Florida, the white ibises are chillin' out, poking holes in the warm, wet sand. She'll have fun with her new camera.

Meanwhile this will be me, guarding the homefront.

Next week I go to the Space Coast Birding Festival (which I seem to only be able to refer to as Space Ghost). This will be my turn to take photos of tame water birds with my new, honking camera. When I get back, we'll have an in-house show-off showdown to see who got the best pix.

Until then, we're more like ships passing in dawn's early light.

I'm going to squeeze every drop of citrus out of my barely 3 days in Florida. There's Internet at my hotel. So I can stalk your blog, 'n you kin stalk mine.
