Backyard nature is a beautiful thing until you personally witness a badass blue jay attack a cute little chickadee family who lived in a cute little birdhouse and steal the babies. Why? Didn't know senseless brutality was practiced within that species (except for the stars of "The Birds").
At least it seemed senseless to me, but maybe I don't know the whole story.
That's all -- no drawn out philosophying (word?). Just therapeutic writing. Have a peaceful day.
