Just a Few Cool Links…

DeeTee From DeeTee:  My friend “the other Mary” (see comment for “The Magic of Mary Oliver”) sent me some really cool links last month, and I want to publish them here:

The “Falcon Cam” of the Evanston Public Library:  Peregrine falcons have been nesting there for several years (I assume because they want their nestlings to be well-educated).  Well, they have a camera set up that updates the picture of the birds, and their nest, every few minutes.  The Other Mary warned me that I’d become addicted, so I didn’t watch right away… and I missed watching the eggs appear!   😦  As the mother and father take turns sitting on the eggs, we will eventually witness the eggs crack and the chicks hatch… now how cool is that?!

Measure for Measure,” a New York Times blog, has several renowned songwriters blogging on the songwriting process which, of course, is different for each and every person.  These writers include:  Andrew Bird (Chicago singer/songwriter & amazing performer), Darrell Brown, Rosanne Cash, and Suzanne Vega (I’m not providing links to each artist, as they are already provided on that blog).  Whether or not you write songs — whether or not you know all these artists — if you are at all interested in the creative process, this is a fascinating read.

Thanks, Other Mary, for the links, and hope y’all enjoy them!
