About kayzee:

I know that the world's in a terrifying state. So why do I feel so optimistic and upbeat? Maybe it's because I'm happily writing for a living. Maybe it's because we have - finally! - a fantastic President. Maybe it's because spring has sprung. Whatever the reason, I'm happy to be alive on this planet at this moment in time.

Update 11/09 - The Phoebe came back and created a nest in the eaves of my cabin.
I haven't read about Global Warming lately, because I've had How-To-Stay-Warm-In-My-House on my mind. Doesn't mean I don't care anymore, it's just that thinking about it was a luxury. Lately, it's all about financial survival. I hope to get back to serious worrying about the planet's fate quite soon.

I'm currently developing a kids' detective story with my local writing group. The horror story is on hold, but will get back to it soon when horror is fun again.

*********************

The bird on my page is a Phoebe that I rehabilitated last summer. Phoebes are flycatchers - they catch bugs on the wing. Her parents pushed her from the nest in a desperate attempt to save her from the infestation of bird mites that had killed her sibling. Then they left, and left me with a week old baby. I gave her a little warm milk & sugar just to get her swallowing, and then moved her onto soaked cat kibble - the rehabber's food of choice. She opened her eyes two days later and I could tell I was not what she expected. When it was time to fledge, I put her in my cabin so she could learn to fly in safety. I captured moths from my screen door, and stocked the cabin so she could learn to feed herself. When she was finally ready to be out on her own, I still walked near the cabin several times a day to give her hand-outs. She would fly through the forest to greet me - there's no feeling like it in the world. Then one day she didn't want anything to do with me, and I knew my job was done.

When I'm not scaring myself to death by reading books like "The Weather Makers" about the human impact on the planet, I'm writing a horror story set in the Catskills. It's about good old supernatural stuff, not the truly horrific stuff the scientists are telling us.

I love surfing around on ThisNext. It's more informative about what's new & hip than reading a magazine or watching TV, more efficient than window-shopping, more addictive than Snood, and my number one favorite avoidance activity when I've got business paperwork to do.
