Wonderful Distraction

How am I supposed to get any work done? Things were working fairly well just now, and a couple of red-tailed hawks decided to buzz the house. Barely rooftop high, echelon left, they cleared the edge by inches, then swooped below the tops of our cherry trees before flapping once to gain enough altitude to clear the hazels at the bottom of the yard. Past that, they connected with the thermal off the Sound and literally rocketed almost straight up a good hundred feet. Then came a third one, on the same track. Now the trio’s over the valley, lazing about in figure-eights and long, still-winged spirals, and an occasional juke I’m sure is just happy-dance show off stuff. Anyone who wouldn’t stop work to watch that sort of beauty isn’t displaying will power; he’s proving he’s a fool.
