dark and stormy


“March weather, like crows, is not to be trusted.”

- from “Wintering” 1979, by Diana Kappel-Smith

I recently read that crows are so mischievous because they are bored being crows. The ebony black birds are very intelligent. They’re like gifted kids caught in grade levels that are beneath them but what can they do about it? Perhaps, the next time you see a crow, you should invite it in for a cup of tea and a stimulating chat.

Like bad kids indeed! I knew a crow once -- his name was Trouble, and well named he was, for he made me chase him through three rooms trying to retrieve a silver set of tweezers that he had snatched up when I dropped them. And to top it off, he laughed the whole time!
