Owl

It's finally warm enough to go for walks at night. The problem with this campus though is it's small and surrounded by dark forest and a lot of it is uphill. No good stretch for nighttime walking, unless you follow the motorway into town, nothing like Warwick. Takes 15 minutes to walk slowly down to the bus stop and past the library and back.

Dark forest. On the way back from the bus stop there was an owl doing it's owl howl in the forest. The countless animals in the forest at night, I think about them from time to time. Like Pryor says "That's their home. You gotta watch out or something'll just grab your ass." And they live like that. Every night. And so did we, until veery recently, when the first lighter was found, somewhere in Africa. No wonder we feel uncomfortable on our own.
