The deer approach most silently and look through the window of our home and show little surprise when we draw near. The solar panels on our hillside, together with the sun's rays, that are the cause of our lower electric bill provide a shelter of sorts for these deer. How nice that we can share the land with them and them with us.
Could it be that the white egret standing tall among a flock of sheep really was hoping to disguise itself among them, though they were not nearly so white? Perhaps not, and maybe the lesson here is to become one with those not quite like ourselves. Savor the diversity.
How is it possible for that red-tailed hawk almost at the top of a tree devoid of leaves to see a creature far below and within seconds be able to snatch it and be sated for a while. Patience and focus bring results.
Sounds of geese flying overhead have such a beckoning call, not just for them, but for me too of the desire to stay close to family, not just in the winter, but always.
