Fabulous Freelancer Friday: Musings and Job Postings for the Week of 1/21/19-1/25/19

Hello, everyone! Another Friday is upon us – how quickly the time flies! I’m humbled and happy to see how this community of fabulous freelancers continues to grow! Welcome to you all, and don’t forget to peruse my Guest Posting Rules 🙂

MUSINGS

  • As someone who lives in a forested area, I regularly see various forms of wildlife making their way through my yard, predominantly squirrels, birds (even the occasional seagull), rabbits, deer, and a pair of coyotes who’ve been coming for years “just because,” since I’ve never gone out of my way to feed them or anything. I’m surprised how they all tend to coexist.
    • Coyotes can, of course, be a polarizing topic. Last year, I attended a fascinating lecture by Jonathan Way about his coyote/coywolf research. Why the term “coywolf?” On his website, he states:
      • “The eastern coyote is really a hybrid between western coyotes and wolves. I do not believe it is accurate to call them coyotes when their DNA (throughout northeastern North America) is composed of western coyote, eastern wolf, gray wolf, and dog genes.”
    • I also learned from the lecture that coyotes are opportunistic feeders, meaning that they’ll eat pretty much whatever is presented to them. If people feed them, they’ll have much less of an interest in pets, etc., or even none at all.
      • I’m starting to think that someone nearby is feeding the resident coyotes and domesticating them, because earlier this week, I noticed how they’ve become noticeably tamer. They were trotting around the neighborhood in the morning and early evening, not bothered by anything and looking more like family dogs who had just escaped their homes. They used to be more cautious and were seen mostly at night.
      • So, I decided to search for instances of coyotes becoming, in fact, tame, and found this completely adorable video:
  • If you’re a fan of musical theater, and need a pick-me-up, I highly recommend the documentary, Carol Channing: Larger Than Life. With her recent passing, iTunes had it front and center in their store for a time, so I rented it. Vivacious, resilient, humble, philanthropic and, of course, incredibly funny…Carol was the embodiment of how life should be lived! Here’s the trailer for it:
  • Of particular note was the work Carol did with her husband (their love story is featured in the documentary) to bring the arts back to all public schools. This remains incredibly necessary in the midst of continuing budget cuts.
