Heal-all, hawkweed, yarrow, purple asters, lady's tresses, eyebright still blooming, but not so many. A few phlox blossoms. Two rosebuds on my salt rose.

I use powdered black-rhino horn for all my healing. It also improves my potency.

Anyone who does use things like that should have lawn weeds really hyped at them. "Nah man, a dose of bittersweet nightshade a day and your erectile disfunction will be only a bad memory".

All 'complimentary and alternative therapies' are as respectable as powdered black rhino horn.

Also equally effective in most cases.

Ohhh, my herbal suggestions above would be much more effective than black rhino horn. Possibly even permanently effective.

Rhino's eat herbs, so their horns (in powdered form) contain every benefit from all the herbs, PLUS the improved male potency.

It's really a panacea

It didn't have much chance, but sorry.

My cat killed a house mouse overnight. I found it this morning, and as I picked it up by the tail to toss it outside I realised I could feel its tiny tail bones and for some reason that grossed me out more than the rest of the gruesomeness. (o god it's a vertebrate!)

makes you realize that it was actually a living thing. With the little mouse, it was transparent, and so I could see all of it's organs working away. Tiny little system of organs, working away, to make it a living thing. Was sad to see the whole system shut down. It had laboured breaths, at the end.

It's sunny, calm and cold, and the leaves are falling like rain. Most trees will be bare by the end of the week.

On the bright side, a bluejay hopping around in a tree that still has a modest cover of bright yellow leaves is a dramatic example of complementary colour in the wild.

Peregrine falcon flew up when I drove past it. It was like 2 meters away from me for a moment.

The summer slaughter has not quite ended. On average we take delivery of 1 dead banl vole or shrew every day or so. I mean I guess it is good we will never have to worry about mice or anything, but you pay a heavy price in dead furry cuteness.

I've been getting mocked lately, by (I think) the same raven. Fucker follows me along a certain part of my path, and makes weird sounds (they have amazing range)

I'm considering taking along some food for it. I'm not sure if it's safe, but it IS tempting. They are HUGE, brilliantly clever birds. Bigger here than anywhere I have seen them.

They are known as 'tricksters', but from an evolutionary slant, making chaos nearly always ends in more to eat for them. More wolf, dog, or raven. They aren't picky.

I remember an old book, and a raven was talking in it and he said something like 'no matter who eats, or gets eaten, there is always some left over for Skeggi'

It's a thought as dark as their feathers.

Ooo! Definitely engage. Even if you get pranked a time or two, having ravens or crows on your side is a good idea. Could make the difference between having a wolf pack sicced on you in March when everything's super hungry or being passed up for the next guy that twists an ankle on the trail.

DON'T trust them. DON'T believe them. DON'T engage with them.

That advice was given about a political group, but I think it also applies to ravens.

Shifty fuckers do look like a good ally, but that's exactly how they would want you to think of them, when really they will eat anyone who has the poor sense to die. Or move too slowly.

Wolves are a bit easier to deal with.

Yes but ravens call the wolves. Not making this up - ravens call wolves to carcases and probably to weakened animals. The thinking is that they need the wolves to open up thick hides so it's easier for the ravens to get at the soft meat beneath.

So then you have ravens and wolves to cope with.

Seriously, Cunt. Think of Zeluvia and me as the friggin' elders of the tribe here, the benign* matriarchal component of collective ancestral memory. Our advice is to make friends with Raven before Raven remembers Other, more ancient Friends.

*citing qualified definitions of 'benign'.

There are stories that flocks of ravens would appear before big battles and were seen as an omen. It seems they were smart enough to follow armies around, as they provided regular meals in the form of rubbish and people and animals dying from disease most of the time, and the occasional massive feast when there was an actual battle.

Small wonder Ravens are so tied up with religion and spiritual beliefs. I mean if there is any species that should be religious back then it was them. Clearly the world was designed for their benefit: look at all the ground blobs that produced lots of food and then spent a considerable amount of time and energy turning each other into yet more food!

From the old shopping bag she unsheathed the dead crow and turned it in what little sunshine strained through the fibrous clouds. The black feathers sparkled in the light, and close inspection revealed iridescent blues and purples. She covered it back up with a tan cloth and, with the draped bird lying breast down on her two upturned palms, stepped gingerly onto a patch of grass. She tore the linen away and unveiled the corpse to the gray heavens.

There was nothing at first, just an empty sky. Then, a caw. A crow appeared on a nearby power line. Then another caw and another crow. Suddenly crows flew in from all directions. Their plaintive entreaties soon combined into a chorus. New arrivals joined what quickly grew into a cacophonous dervish of black silhouettes swirling directly above Swift.

It was like sorcery. Conjuring dozens of birds from thin air by simply removing fabric from a body.

This, according to Swift, is what its like to attend a crow funeral—an instinctive ritual that evolved generations ago and was just discovered by humans; Swift coauthored an article on her findings in the journal Animal Behaviour in 2015. The gist: Upon spotting one of its dead, the flock attends to the fallen bird en masse with loud shrieking. Given enough time the throng will mob any predator it thinks is responsible, like say, a human in a Dick Cheney mask, or in a mask like the one Swift had in her bag (the lab affectionately refers to that be-soul-patched fellow as Joe).

So we were waaaaay out offroad on the inner side of the dunes and taking a lunch break. Not another soul in sight. This big flock of crows landed on the salt flat, maybe 200 birds. Then about a dozen of them flew up and settled on the side of a dune. All of them were milling about and 'talking'. Then one crow flew from the large group to the small group, communicated with them for a bit, then flew back to the main group, where more agitated 'conversation' took place. This went on for a good half hour, one crow flying back and forth between the two groups. We were fascinated. It looked exactly as if important matters were being discussed between a leadership group and the main flock. It was still going on when we left. Mysterious, and memorable.

The ravens would, no doubt, get friendly. I'm not so sure I would be the clever one in that relationship.

No matter who eats, and who gets ate...fuck sakes, hasn't ANYONE read Tailchasers Song?
