This morning I got out my Sony PCM M10 audio recorder to record some atmos for an upcoming play I’m involved with. It’s been roughly 2 years since I last had it out and I was expecting to need to find some new batteries for it.

I got up and left early one day last week as I had a busy morning at work. It was a rainy day and I was happy I’d changed my wiper blades the night before as the old ones were not up to the task anymore.

I approached as gently as possible thinking that at any minute he would see me and fly away.
