The working vocabulary of the average 14-year-old has declined in the last 50 years from 25,000 words to 10,000. Language reflects the depth of our human experience. Because we think in words, are we losing the capacity to say what we feel? Like, whatever.

I love these rustic and creative bird houses. They look almost romantic with snow.
Regarding your comment about vocabulary. In the distant past a high school graduated was considered to be educated enough that they could teach school. How far we have fallen! Now, our schools are not even teaching cursive writing, which means that cursive reading will disappear, too. How will people, in the future, be able to read old family diaries, or other important documents written in cursive? As a historian, this prospect just makes me sick. What a loss!
