hallucinating again...

Doesn't this picture sort of look like notes on a music staff?

Doesn't it? Sort of? Somewhat? Come on people, humor me!

Here it definitely looks more like just a bunch of pigeons.

And now, a couple of videos featuring ornithological hygiene:

Sparrows taking a "dust bath"

A robin splashing in a bird bath on my parents deck. In keeping with the hallucinatory theme, my father is commenting on another bird in another bird bath and my mother is agreeing with him. This implies varying amounts of surrealism, depending upon your level of familiarity.

Meanwhile, the Capital was gleaming gloriously in the early evening light as I drove to my gig on Monday night.

Haha, good hallucinations! How do you ever install such video clips I wonder? Yes, the birds on the wire definitely look like music notes.Can you write down the melody?
Have you installed your shower curtain yet? I wouldn`t want a see-through glass, either!

Hey! That last picture! That's home!

Angela - hallucinating is fun! If you use Blogger, there's a button on the top strip for inserting a video. It doesn't always work very well though. It will still be a few more months before we can move back in, so no shower curtain yet!

Lilu - So you recognize the view looking South from North Capitol Street, eh?

I found myself wanting to assign letters to those lines and spaces. I was also looking for a key signature.

I miss seeing the Capitol as an every day view. When we lived on the Hill I'd see it every time I came home from...well, pretty much anywhere.

And I agree - while I'm no musician - the birds look like notes.

LOVE LOVE LOVE that firs picture. And YES it does!

I see what you see in that first pic. We must be having a mass halucination.

Definitely music notes! I so enjoy your pics and videos mixed with musings. Very nice.
