item 1: we got Serenity tickets! For Friday morning. Yeeha.
item 2: we saw a pair of red-tailed hawks mating on the drive into Snohomish!
Yes, they're supposed to mate in spring, but there was no mistaking what those birds were doing. Jumped off a telephone pole and spiraled all the way down as one - awesome.
Been painting muchly the last couple of days. V. good. Persephone and I seem to have an understanding.
