Have you met MajikBoxMan?

Slowly wandering the lanes, waiting for something to catch his eye—movement, color, a look of joy—the Irishman is seldom noticed. With his walking stick and pixie box, he waits until just the right moment, then raises the implement and snaps, catching a look, a pose, swirl of the skirts, before moving on to find his next opportunity. Only those interested in the same things may catch the tale tell signs of an inveterate photographer. Let me introduce you to MajikBoxMan. […]

Have you met Karen “Kitty” Tolson Carroll?

The sharp cries of the hunting cast overhead silence the watching crowd as the falconer, swinging a lure at the end of a line, explains what is happening. With a sudden change to the angle of the wings, one of the Harris’ hawks begins the rapid descent known as a stoop, catches the target in mid-air, and lands, mantling the prize quickly. The falconer waits a moment, allowing the hawk to break in, before calling it to the gauntlet and rewarding it with a tidbit. Moving to the edge of the field, she fists the hawk to the perch and attaches the jesses to the anklet before turning to call the other members of the cast in. The vast array of knowledge and skill needed to not only care for, but also teach about, these and other wonderful birds takes a special person. Let me introduce you to Karen “Kitty” Tolson Carroll. […]
