Hello 2012

scootering along the road to my sisters this morning
i see what looks like a blown truck tyre or something
strips of mangled looking rubber
realise after i pass that it was actually a small flock of black cockatoos grazing on the grass beside the pathway (8 to 10 ish)

and do we not really just see what we expect to see?
and sight more in the brain than the eyes

cannot help but think this may indicate i am not be in the best frame of mind at this start of a new year


  1. Jealous, jealous, jealous. A small flock of black cockatoos? It is a red letter day when we get one here. And yes, I think we do see what we expect to see, and hear what we expect to hear as well. Leading to us missing out on things.
    Hope your day/year improves quickly.

  2. when I worked out at the local defence base I used to see red tailed black cockatoos all the time, and regular cockatoos, galahs etc some kind of wild geese and a plethora of wildlife. It was great :)
