I'm not necessarily a fan of purple—nor do I dislike it—you could say I am purple neutral. But what a strange thing happened this morning. I looked down at my weaving and saw that I had a purple temple stretching out my cloth, a purple weft in my shuttle, and I was wearing a purple shirt! What does this mean? Probably nothing.
About yesterday's bird...thanks for all the suggestions. It appears to be rough legged hawk although this is not its usual habitat.
