    Going crayish trapping tomorrow

    Crayfish aren't commonly harvested in Michigan, unlike some of the southern states, so I figure that it oughtta be fairly easy to trap enough for dinner.

    I just finished making two traps, and tomorrow I'll be heading out in the kayak to try them out.

    Wish me luck!

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I believe crawdads are nocturnal. Do they live that far north?

    I had to dissect a crawdad in high school. I still smell formaldehyde just looking at one. It has been decades, and I still don't think I will ever eat one. My loss, I'm sure.

    Wow - I never heard of that. Frogs & pigs, but not crawdads. (In my college Anatomy class, it was cats. That was kinda creepy.)

    Ha, yeah. We started with mussels and moved up to frogs. I don't eat mussels or frogs either. I can't remember if there was another animal in between, but for us, the frog was the most complex. I keep thinking I'm going to try mussels, but I never do.
