Scene 02-16 Waiting for the Drakes

This lovely lady was in a group of five, three females and two drakes in fine mating plumage. After a long and exciting session of chases across the surface of the river and through a section of rapids, they all disappeared upriver from me. My patience was rewarded when this lone female came back and was swimming along the opposite bank, preening and waiting for the drakes to return.

Left brain, right brain, I can't decide. After many years of successful visual arts pursuits, I'm working on my other creative inclinations. For the past 8 years, writing has been my second full time job, and it's worth every sleepless night. Sheri J. Kennedy grew up mostly a city-girl coasthopping from Seattle to rural Pennsylvania, Miami and back to Seattle. She currently resides on the banks of the Snoqualmie River in the scenic Cascade Mountains. Her heart has found its home.
