Purgatory loop for Mother’s day Sunday. Early enough to start cool & dew-scented. Decided CW at last moment & away into green, May and June be green and Sunday morn be quiet. Tired by end. Thought some about the Krista Tippett program from earlier featuring a Gordon Hempton, an acoustic ecologist who studies/pursues sound in nature. So much of our sound is indeed noise pollution. He was full of interesting commentary, eg, “birdsong is the primary indication of habitats prosperous for a human.” Silence & true solitude are hard to come by. I think he had 12 places in the US for true silence (maybe 3 left) is a stand of trees in the Hoh rain forest in Olympic NP. Has a web presentation, "One Square Inch", well worth visiting. At one point, sounds were reasonably pure: birdsong, bubbling Black Brook alongside Black Brook Road plus my breathing (not too bad) and footfall.

Stopped at Glenwood, the curious came to peer

Have seen this in a 25 sq mile area

only on the final one I noted on the run today, was there additional info: lost vic. 81 Hackett Hill (name of an early O map) Rd., 4/21, bolted from vet’s office, no collar or tag. Hope they found him, hope they remove the signs (maybe hundreds) someday.
