This is how we winter in Texas.
 

 

This is how we winter in Texas

  1. Go birding with your loved ones.
  2. Try not to worry about how the cold affects the worms and the creatures who love them. Or about the geese who can’t handle the Iowa cold. Or about a baby bird getting eaten by a fish. 
  3. Stew about the Texas power grid. “Point of Order: The Outage and the Outrage" is an excellent analysis of what happened last week (45-minute podcast by the Texas Tribune.)
  4. Fret with Aldo Leopold about the spiritual dangers of not owning a farm.
  5. Feel joy and hope as loved ones get the vaccine, as captured in this Washington Post article
  6. Dream of living on the road. I really liked Nomadland, a movie directed by Chloe Zhao. Props to South Dakota for spectacular scenery. For a different perspective, read Lara Prescott’s take on RV life. Prescott is the author of The Secrets We Kept, a highly entertaining spy novel/homage to Russian literature/historical romance.  
  7. Identifying as a birder, in all its dorkiness and with all of its difficulties.
  8. When you can’t be outside birding, get lost in Audubon’s The Joy of Birding.
