This video of doves flying in Taiwan was just too graceful and peaceful not to share, especially at this time of year when any bird flying overhead in Minnesota is a minor miracle to behold. Winter’s breath and gilded wing draw one’s eye immediately to the majesty of the frozen sky. And here’s one of the videographer’s photos of this event:

As for the blog title, my apologies for the play on the Prince tune. I’m in the midst of revisiting my cultural past, boxes and boxes of it.

Sweet. I have a recollection of many silver doves against dark, ominous thunder clouds.
but my image goes to album " Pictures not taken".

Is it still a mystery why all those thousands of birds and fish died in Arkansas?

Can they be "canaries in the mine" or something?

Thinking of Camus' The Plague.

Frank, you had me at Camus. But, honestly, I have no idea about the Arkansas findings. :)
