    my heart would break even more.
    and it's Mr. Franzen that woke up my love for birds.
    I always thought they were cute, and would feed them.
    but after I got done with this last book, I was a full convert.

      I had a hard time looking at many of the images, especially the video that plays on the opening page. I understand the need to eat but there won't be many birds left to breed (or eat) at the pace they are going.

        but jesus chris, if there were five animals left on this freaking planlet, people still would not give a shit and would whine but i like bacon.
        ugh.
