This Spring has been full of Turkey Vultures. Storms of them totter in the volatile Mississippi River air. Single ones circle the bright sky pretending they are serious and looking for a meal.
They just like flying.
You laugh, but, oh, wouldn't you, fly?
In the morning I sit down and write my blog posts about libraries or Republicans or Picasso or butter or soccer or love, and I look up into the sky to calibrate my heart, and I see Turkey Vultures.
So eventually I thought I should probably write some blog posts about Turkey Vultures.
Once that big decision was made I considered the matter; there are an awful lot of things to say about Turkey Vultures! There are too many things to say about Turkey Vultures. And no one has said them.
So I revised up. I will write 600 blog posts about Turkey Vultures.
This is the first one.
