New things!

Hello! I hope you’re enjoying this rainy (or not, depending on your particular sky’s mood) Sunday as much as I am. I just wanted to share some upcoming ch-ch-changes to this blog.

This may come as a shock, but I can be wordy. My feverish love affair with language sometimes bogs me down. But I know that brevity is (usually) good for blogging, and (always) good for my job.

So in an effort to hone my skills of concision, I’m going to try to start posting some “micro” content, a la the great Seth Godin (and many others). I’ve never written this way before. I may be utterly miserable at it. Hopefully I won’t scare too many people away.

The second tidbit of newness is that I’m going to start porting my content over to Medium. I’ve enjoyed the platform passively for awhile, and I’d like to try it out. For the time being, I’ll post to both locations. If Medium seems like a nice place to settle down and raise a family, Love and Birding might end up living there permanently.

For now, you can follow me on Medium! You’ll find last week’s post there soon, followed closely by my first “micro-post.” In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this bathroom wall quote that made me wrinkle my face in a not unpleasant way:


A quote on the wall of Caffe Paradiso in Champaign, IL:

“The fact that you move so beautifully more or less takes care of futurism.”

  1. Hello:

    I read your article in Adventure Kayak.
    Our club (Saint Louis Canoe and Kayak Club) has a lot of members that have spare boats.
    If you ever want to paddle with us you would be welcome. Since I gather you/re in C/U now, we occasionally paddle lakes in Illinois (Carlyle, Rend, Kincaid), and sometimes the Mississippi for day trips and overnights.
