Birds and the bees

sparrowsCory over at Boing Boing has a nice book review which pointed me to Rick Lieder's amazing nature photographs.

I've been really enjoying his collection online and feel a bit inspired by the fact that he doesn't use high speed film or any fancy tricks to capture moments like in the picture here.

I spent a busy weekend as a new board member of Appalachian Community Fund sifting through applications and deciding as a group which ones best fit the vision of social change by encouraging grassroots networking in the Appalachia area. I'll speak more about this in the future as I become more experienced with the organization and the grant making process.

In the meantime, if you're looking for a good cause that's serious about working to overcome the underlying causes of poverty and injustice in Central Appalachia then I suggest you consider ACF for your next charitable donation. I can personally vouch for this group and assure you that it's on the complete up and up. It's a no frills way of getting much needed money to groups in this area that have always struggled with unusually high levels of poverty.
