Winter cleaning find

8 12 2017

Yet another spring cleaning session last week…this time in the “craft room,” where I prepare matted photos, make jewelry, sew, craft and such. Biggest task is to go through boxes of papers to file…and I always run across random photos, like this one shot by my friend Karen back in the late 80s. We were outside her townhouse (I rented a room from her, and we had just returned from Giant Food, where we both worked as graphic designers). This little sparrow landed on the brick wall surrounding the back patio and eventually landed on my hand (with a little coaxing with a piece of bread). Everyone who saw this photo said, “oh, it must have been sick.” Seriously? It couldn’t be that I just might be a sparrow whisperer? Hmm? (This was during my curly hair perm days, which earned me the nickname of Curl Girl by my friends Karen and Nina.)
