selfie with a spicebush hat

I call it "soapbush" and rubbing it on yourself sort-of helps keep off the bugs. But the bugs were annoying so I tried to make a hat. It still did not do much good.

Fool enough to think I can spot a woodcock

A woodcock flew up ahead of me and landed quickly, a few feet away. I thought I could photo it, but filming is the only thing fast enough.

Planning

Since describing an action gives a narrative for it - a plan - I want to examine the idea that a plan is a narrative with narrative structure similar to the action itself. Since the actions precede language, must not language evolve along lines that already exist in the mind or "motor-sensory" system?

In other words the underlying system of narrative structure would predate language.
