This morning I saw a female cardinal. It’s easy to spot the males because they’re a brilliant red but today, the lady bird sat watching the finches and me not far from my kitchen window. I decided her presence was a power sign. She stood out, even without her man in his beautiful coat nearby. She was doing perfectly fine on her own.

I enjoyed some blog posts this week from people I’m not as familiar with. One of them wrote about the need for search engine marketing and/or Internet education in schools and universities.
