A couple of short months, but some nice travelogue. And I made the 100th post under At the park (even if I lose count sometimes). The first sentence (more or less) of the first post for the last twelve months:
- 1 January: “Jackson [Pollock] had said, ‘I am nature.'”
- 8 February: Earlier this week, test trains began running on the section of track from Innovation Center to west of the airport, as reported by Max Smith.
- 2 March: Aziza Barnes’ play is high energy, often played at farce tempos.
- 2 April: A turn of phrase that has stayed with me over the years, from James Thurber, “The Topaz Cufflinks Mystery,” (23 July 1932).
- 2 May: From my most recent report: Two boxes hatched (including 13 ducklings from little box #5) and one new nest is started.
- 2 June: From my report on last Sunday’s monitoring work: Our birds continue to surprise.
- 2 July: From my final weekly report from Huntley Meadows Park: A somewhat perplexing end to the season.
- 6 August: Barring new hitches, MWAA has set 16 July 2020 as the opening date for Phase II, according to reporting by Max Smith.
- 2 September: It’s Labor Day, so it’s time for a walk in the park.
- 4 October: feather is to plumage as hair is to pelage as scale is to…?

- 10 December: “This book is the final chapter of, and the summation of, a work conceived and begun in 1925.”
The year in review:
