SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I am stalking crawdads today … see, there is one. [shows crawdad slipping from rocks into water] … Oh, there he goes! [shows other crawdads in water] … Look at! Can you see them? Stick around … [shows another crawdad] … They do not like sounds. Look at that! [crawdads are edging backwards off rocks into water] … Oh, they are all going down. [One is left on a rock.] Hello, dude! Hello, hello, how are you? Yeah, they do not like me much.

[Shows hummingbird moth hovering over the water and gently touching it with its lower abdomen.] What is that, a hummingbird moth? Is it drinking the water? … [searches around, finds three crawdads; one is larger.] Oh, look at that one! He is hiding in the water. [shows another crawdad nearby] There is one. And look, they are thinking of fighting, I think … There are four there; one is hiding … No, no fight. [pans around] … Look at that; there is one hiding, one not hiding. This place is incredible; it is Crawdad Condo City. Well…

What happened is that this is an irrigation conduit here. [Zooms back, to show the irrigation conduit.] See? Sometimes it has water in it, and sometimes it does not. But on the deep spots, there are these pools, and when the conduit dries up, all the crawdads hang out together in the pools.

That is it, from Crawdad City.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
