Some links and signs of spring

Written By: Miranda - Mar• 16•11

On the way to work this morning I heard an NPR piece about Ramy Essam, the musician who was “arrested” and tortured by the army last week. I wondered if any of the 23 year olds I know are capable of saying as Ramy does now that  he “still believes that there are honest people who will investigate what happened.” I have to believe that they would, when push came to shove. There is another piece about Ramy here, at The Traveller Within.

In other news, I smelled a skunk along True’s Brook Road and that’s a sure sign of spring. Also my friend Tom emailed me at work to tell me he had spotted a Red-winged Blackbird at the feeder. Yay! Hearing their trilling call is always a thrilling moment in the spring.
