Now that I am on day shift, going outside is no longer depressing.

Skyridge Park is once again a serene and beautiful place: Dense woodland and a few well-maintained trails with a couple of wooden bridges and benches, accompanied by the sound of singing birds and flowing streams. Though a little narrow, the largest of the bridges is big enough to do the Yang taijiquan long form on, and after that I can go to the bench nearby, see nothing but forest, and sit down and draw things for a while.

Birds prefer to have a lot of room for some movements, particularly "white crane fans its wings" and "step back and repulse monkey". You should always be ready to repulse monkeys.

The park appears to be well-populated with spotted towhees. I am particularly fond of these talkative birds. They are not so shy when they have lots of trees and thick underbrush to hide in. Like most songbirds, they sleep at night, so I am thankful to have their company again.
