WAT TYLER SEZ: Ah you good people, things cannot go well in England until all property is in common and there are neither serfs nor gentlemeN but one united people. How ill they behave to us! For what reason do they hold us in bondage? Are we not descended from the same parents, Adam and Eve. And what can they show or what reason can they give, why they should be more masters than ourselves. The lords claim to be more lords than we are rests only on their power to force us to labour and produce in order that they may spend.
Saw an eagle roosting in a tree overlooking Sto:lo
saw our first Western Swallowtail of the season
nearly died of cottonwood fluff
Saw a heron in the same place as the last time, fishing
Saw a pileated woodpecker flying from tree to tree
the woods were full of thrushes and towhees
We got really close to a crow
Lots of widdy dogs
Quite a mix of people with masks and without – I was without.
Afterwards we went back to Paul’s and Keith fed us pita and veggies and roast chickpeas. I loaned Paul my three-guitar floor stand to encourage him to play more. kMike came home before I left so I got to talk to him, but I missed Katie.
At home, Jeff prepped and fired up the air conditioner and I’m sure we had a much more pleasant sleep.
Tiny amount of practicing (I’m working on my hammered guitar skills) and writing.
