City Escapades

I went into Philly today to see my spiritual director. It was a lovely day for a walk, sunny and crisp. As I crossed 12th street, I watched a very plump pidgeon waddle along the curb like a balance beam, then slide down the "ramp" the curb made when it reached the cut at the corner. It look all the world like a penguin sliding down an ice chute!

  1. not sure what a penguin would think about being compared the a philly pigeon. Darwin speaks lots about pigeons, so keep observing.

  2. It'll be icy soon enough, I guess...
