Jama Ecuador – Lots of stories and images are in queue here on the Pacific coast. There’s a very special bird sighting – awaiting confirmation on its identity, and there are encouraging stories of those moving forward, poco a poco now ten months after the earthquake. The rains have been heavy, and many streets are more dirt than gravel, so mud boots are almost mandatory in some towns!

What follows is a ditty that will explain why future correspondence might be brief!

MY LITTLE BURRITO

The keyboard sticks, the screen is cracked

I hiss at it, but it won’t hiss back

The cursor freezes

and does as it pleases

This burro of mine

refuses to mind!

A sentence or two

and then it is through

It careens on a tangent

to an alien planet

Orbs march down the cracks

in sadistic attacks

It fights as I type

then leaps out of sight

(Maybe because it wants to retire!)

It seeks and finds

but balks most times

This ain’t no joke-

it’s had a stroke!

We're hobbling along until time to put it to pasture!

We’re hobbling along until time to put it to pasture!

We’ll proceed in bursts of activity, depending on those moments when it’s feeling well!
