Egret and another Tower
When we went to get our weekly fish supply I spotted this egret in the yard next door. The one with the house dreamed of living in right on the water, coastal dreaming. The egret was intent on catching something so I slowly got out of the car hoping to get a photo. Just then the egret caught something in a fern. I clicked my camera and saw there was a large lizard wiggling in the mouth of the egret, trying to get free.
The egret tried positioning the lizard so he could eat him. Eventually he swallowed the lizard whole.
The bulge in the egret's throat is where the lizard is now.
I worked on another tower today. It's about fifteen inches tall and maybe three inches in diameter; more narrow in diameter than the others I've made so far. Two circles balance on the tower which hold up another circle in the middle, which holds up one balanced on the top. I make the tower stacking on strip of clay on top of another. When I get to the top some sort of idea comes to me about the top. Hope the circles stay put. Life is a balancing act. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
