For two, small, beautiful, Woodpecker body feathers, discovered along a favourite path through the woods earlier this Autumn.

Vilby Green is open source. It runs Adafruit Feather M4 express, DS3231 precision RTC FeatherWing and beautiful NeoPixel FeatherWing. So it’s open source grow box.




Maybe from a juvenile Peregrine Falcon... any other thoughts on identification? Coming across such beauty on walks is always a bit magical.

Preolithic’s favorite prehistoric creatures part 1

Favorite Theropod

Therizinosaurus is my favorite theropod mainly because of how different it is compared to any other theropod that lived around its time. By the look of this scary devil chicken, you would think it would have been the apex carnivore of the time but this giant would have been a peaceful herbivore using its 3m long claws. Although we have only found the arms of it but comparing the size to other Therizinosauridae Therizinosaurus it would have been massive up to 6m tall.

Favorite Crocodile

Armadillosuchus was a small crocodile that lived during the cretaceous period in brazil, what is fascinating about this little croc was that is had armadillo-like plating which gives it it’s name. Unlike most crocodiles, it had a lot of mammal-like features in the jaw and teeth but was unrelated. Armadillosuchus in life would have been up to 6.6ft long.

Favorite Sauropod 

Shunosaurus was a very distinct looking sauropod and had a very unique feature, unlike other sauropods that used their size as a defense or used spikes around there neck to stop them getting bitten Shunosaurus had a spiked tail allowing it to attack predators. This is very rarely seen on sauropods and makes me think of them when people say “think of a sauropod”

Mary Oliver, What do we know, p 43

Take care you don’t know anything in this world too quickly or easily. Everything is also a mystery, and has its own secret aura in the moonlight, its private song.

If you meet her don’t be afraid, just stand still. And, while you let her stare you down, notice how she stamps her pretty, little feet. Notice how she shines.

mary oliver, what do we know, p43

Mary Oliver, What Do We Know, p44

Now are the rough things smooth, and the smooth things stand in flickering slats, facing the slow tarnish of sun-fall. Summer is over, or nearly. And therefore the green is not green anymore but yellow, beige, russet, rust; all the darknesses are beginning to settle in. And therefore, why pray to permanence, why not pray to impermanence, to change, to—whatever comes next. Willingness is next to godliness. Once I watched a swallow playing with a feather, high on the blue air. The swallow wanted to fly and frolic; the feather just wanted to float. Many times the swallow dropped the feather, which drifted away, then went diving and careening after it. There are so many things to do in this world, and so many things to be done. Right now I’m glad to be agile and insistent. But, later! Then, I’ll be happy to give up the quick burst, oh darling and important world, and just float away.

Original Character October, day 12

Name: Dayna Lanneïl

Race and class: Elf (snow) Mystic

Faction: Dharka Savada

Description: Dayna has a rather mundane administrative job for the goverment of Gharmyra. Despite how the Lanneïl are a really powerful family within Remyra, Dayna holds nothing but a grudge towards her last name, as the expectations for her to become an important figure within the clan caused her to lose her legs in an enemy skirmish as a kid. Together wiith Belyrd, her girlfriend, they’re trying to uncover the secret workings between all the factions.

(Dayna! She’s always bound to look fab and regal, despite how much she likes her own noble origins.)

Otherwise “it” will consume, devour & destroy.


Grackle teaches us to release our heavy emotions. Allow what will be, to just be.


Finding a way out of our emotional heaviness and gloriously sing our individual tune drowning out the negative inner thinking; including our personal harsh words and self-condemnation.


Sometimes life’s shit show and stormy weather are there to teach us how resilient we truly are rather than believing incorrect information about ourselves such as how broken and worthless we are.


The next time you’re at the beach and that silly little grackle family wants your pizza crust or fries, just remember, they do not care about the struggle, they rejoice in the emotional freedom- especially while nibbling on tasty human scraps.

I close my eyes and fan the air by my ear. I hear nothing, only feel a slight breeze.

An owl’s feathers are silent in flight because individual barbs zipper shut so no air can rush through like the sound of desert wind. Each time I find a feather, I brush its webbing like velvet against my cheek. Sometimes, I close my eyes and fan the air by my ear. I hear nothing, only feel a slight breeze.
