I continue to carry a stress headache which is far heavier than the day backpack. I’m not sleeping well yet and so cannot tune in properly to what I am experiencing, but know I mustn’t fight it. I know it will all be taken care of by my ...
... of eight to circle over his prey. I imagine that as the wind was coming towards us he didn't sense us being there. We were so close we could see his feathers being ruffled by the strong breezes that flowed on the thermal. We weren't just watching at that moment, we were feeling that moment, maybe even in it.
