February is the worst month for cabin fever.  It can lead one into all sorts of crippling diversions.  Take, for example, this vintage, 7 1/2″ tall bronze eagle I just purchased  on ebay.

I have been urged by certain inner voices to try and incorporate this handsome fellow as a nosepiece on Phoenix.

Why?  Because the urge to break out of the ordinary is unusually strong this winter.  All the snow and fog that has cocooned us these last few months seems to be affecting my perspective.  A countervailing voice warns about the dangers of artistic pretension.  It will probably be best to consult the Sun Gods before making any irrevocable moves with my hacksaw.
