Last night was rather more emotionally tumultuous than I would have liked, but this morning was absolutely gorgeous. Blue sky, sunshine. On my way to class, the Canada geese were grazing in the woods, grey-lined bodies in the rusty leaves. They stare at me. Black button eyes, neatly aligned feathers, huge bodies. And scattered among them, shining purple-blue, the glossy blackbirds fluttering up and down. Iridescent, they flash out of the brown leaf-piles, like jewels.
