Finding art in remote places is exciting. This piece is a painted bull skull found in Cedar City, Utah, USA:
Artist Lydia Brescia. She calls it Medicine Man Bull Skull. “It has a ‘third-eye’ on the handprint, lightning bolts shooting from hands and “glo in the dark paint” on the inside, garnet on antler slice near the end of the nose, dream catcher, hawk and Peacock feathers and bear decorations along with aboriginal painting!”
How do you watch birds when you have no sight? I had seen a documentary about blind bird watchers: A group of blind people were guided through woods. They were able to decipher a variety of bird calls and, from the sound of it, sensed they were in the midst of thousands of birds.
The next day, I tried it. I walked to my favorite wooded path. Looking around me, I saw the flutter of a passing bird every now and then, and heard a tweet or two. Then, I closed my eyes and stood quietly. That’s when the magic began.

Blind bird-watching is a wonder. I suggest you try it.
