He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant. His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me… whenever… wherever – in case I need him. And I expect I will – as I always have. He is just my dog.” – Gene Hill /////////////////////////////////////////// Forever Alone NOT.

Coldwater Farm Update for Spring 2014

This morning I saw the first Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus) of the year.  It was flying alone and did not stop to let me take a photo.  Conservation status uncertain.

This week two Sonora Mud Turtles (Kinosternon sonoriense) began sunning on a small branch in my pond.  I thought I saw these turtles in the pond several years ago, but only this year have I had a chance to take photos.  Conservation status=S4, Apparently secure, possible long-term concern (Arizona Game and Fish Department–AZGFD).

In March, a pair of Common Black hawks (Buteogallus anthracinus) reoccupied their nest in a Cottonwood tree by the river.  Now I get a whistled scolding when I go down to feed the nesting ducks.  Conservation status=S3, Vulnerable (AZGFD).

.

For their 16th year, the Red-tailed Hawks (Buteo jamaicensis) have occupied the tall tree on the edge of the Cow pasture, and two others have occupied the old nest on Green Gulch.  I will have to watch my Gopher population closely.  Conservation status=S5, secure (AZGFD).

Summer Tanagers (Piranga rubra) appeared yesterday.  It seems too early, but here they are.  Conservation status=S4, Apparently secure, possible long-term concern (AZGFD).

Four Mule Deer (two doe and two yearlings) (Odocoileus hemionus) have been browsing around the house.  One of the yearlings might be the one born here last year.  Conservation status=S5, secure (AZGFD).

A reader of my novel, Corr Syl the Warrior, emailed a review today that I decided to share.  The novel is my first attempt to use fiction to promote nature conservation.  Arizona librarians chose it as Arizona’s 2014 contribution to the One-Book-One-Community program.  This month, April–2014, you may down the eBook free from www.OneBookAZ.org.

Death Beneath the Pavement

Death Beneath the Pavement

Death Lies Beneath the Pavement

Entombing the life of the soil.

Beneath the pavement of the street and the concrete of the sidewalk lie the corpses of tiny creatures by millions entombed unknown and unremembered.

“When you thrust a shovel into the soil or tear off a piece of coral, you are, godlike, cutting through an entire world. You have crossed a hidden frontier known to very few. Immediately…
