red-tailed hawks are following me around which means i have a mystical connection with them or i smell like something they want to eat.
within the span of a couple days one has flown by my window at work, circled overhead on my way home and perched just to my left as i took out the recycling.
i'm like a falconer! or a lunatic! if i was seeing things that weren't there and the things were pleasant and meaningful in some uncertain way i would choose to continue the illusion. i wonder what that says about me? i should ask the hawk what he thinks.
