I’m trying out something new, and have posted a short blog-like post free on Scribd.

It adds a little more to the book.

Basically, I took one image I liked, but wasn’t able to include in the narrative for the new American Robins book, and showed how I work up the image, plus created a small poem to go with it, showing how unused images can lead to other creative work.

Intro

Unlike “Love’s Travels – Vermont Paris Austin” which also has an image story, the text portion in American Robins is not in prose verse but in simple narrative format.

Links are provided to some of the places referred to.

And two bonus sections, images and narrative commentary with links, compare similarities of birds in Austin and Galveston, to what my wife enjoyed seeing happen with the Robins when they showed up in our snowy backyard March 01, 2012.

February 14, 2014

The American Robins’ arrival onto the backyard of our old 1800s Victorian apartment house on March 01, 2012, in Burlington, Vermont, was an iconic lasting memory for both myself and my wife Sheila.

I had been lamenting the nearing of the end of my only full winter outside of Texas (and two in Florida when I was in the Air Force).

Though summer in Vermont was decidedly different from an impending summer in Central Texas ;-) we had experienced the second mildest winter in Vermont’s recorded history. That it had been more cold and more snow than I had seen and experienced my whole sixty plus years prior combined, was little comfort for me. For example, the sleigh ride I had so looked forward to on the snow at night along the shore of Lake Champlain, had been cancelled for the first time ever due to lack of snow.

So when my wife called to me to come quickly, I could tell by the sound of her voice it was for something she thought I’d really like. She was right.

Snow was falling and clearly visible through the tall window of the back bedroom.

That was pretty nice by itself. But she also was pointing out a lone bird, perched on the lip of the roof of the apartment house next door.

From there a story unfolded, and once we had raised both the storm and regular windows, with an unimpeded view to the outside, the pictures captured the tale.

I hope you’ll enjoy this. The mixture of seeing the robins in motion, and seeing winter’s end sealed for spring’s entrance, made a memory to take back to Texas.
