I have surrendered to the void, and now I enjoy jays almost like anyone else does, which is to say like someone who isn't completely obsessed with them. It would be hard to write a decent book about one blue jay unless you were a bit obsessed. There are plenty of times I bring it and get something awesome. It had been years since I'd seen a barred owl like that. I finally got perhaps ten seconds' worth, just enough to skid outside and grab a shot. I see so many jays every day it's impossible to keep expecting one of them will be Jemima. I breathed a prayer of thanks to the redtail who'd blown its cover. As big as sycamores get, wouldn't it make sense to root yourself farther back on the bank? It takes root where it takes root, then deals with the consequences of cut banks and underwash, of having the rug pulled out from under it with every spring flood. All day long, I've been watching for the tired sun to peek out from under the covers. There is glory out there for the finding, if you don't mind that it only lasts a few seconds.

After I got married, I very quickly secured the dominating position in our marriage.
When my husband graduated from college, he was not able to find a job.
He could not collect unemployment benefits or social welfare as the authorities told him that he needed to talk to me for support as I had enough income... And I told him the moment he walked through the door that his male was over forever... I had all his male clothing destroyed the next day. When I had him put on hormones, he started some resistance again, but I reminded him what the rules were.
