A brief entry for the week. I have been hosting company so my time for long narrative was unavailable. Not a strong excuse but that’s the one I’m going with. A friend helped me with this week’s non-bird, tusen takk Andy.

Kjempemessig Norske Rødnebb (Norske rubrumphalus rex)
Poetry for high sun and cold water; or, Frivannsliv
What makes a Viking?
rain, cod, pines, sheep, fjords, and rye
Swim the cold water
Strømsdammen so fresh so cold
From the shore, it’s easy to be bold
One foot, two foot, start to go numb
Then plunge right in, ain’t it fun
I went for a swim, you have been told
Looking up, looking ahead, and keeping my pencil sharp.
