I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Saturday reflections

All things considered, this is not a bad winter. I think it's only the inescapable excruciating election that makes it seem so dreary.

I'd like to say that if Donald Trump won't go away, I will, but my first trip of the year -- a three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand -- is still six interminable weeks away.

But I have guidebooks to go through and new bird names -- dusky gerygones, chiming wedgebills, pied currawongs, spangled drongos -- to smile at, and it will be here before I know it.
