I have to spend the day at the university. There are matters unsettled that I have to contribute to. Yay, the lake in front of the university has attracted duck that I have never seen before in Okinawa.
I love birdwatching. I am delighted that the thrill has not gone. I mean a lot of sensations are blunted by old age but my excitement of seeing birds when I do not expect to see them is as intense as when I was 20.
Near my crib, there is a retirement home for old fighting bulls. Touchingly, Egrets hang around the old bulls to pick off ticks and stuff. On the way back from OIST I watch a very gentle Egret nurse an old bull.
