Perhaps to those familiar with their ways
The sight would not have been so startling:
A deer fording the Missouri in the early afternoon.
I had a few of those moments in 2015: a family of skunks scurrying down a dark, wet street; a butterfly landing on my sleeve for just a moment; a young buck drinking from the birdbath in my backyard. Moments that made me hold my breath and stay still.
Thank you for reading my blog. I wish you a wonderful 2016 filled with magical moments!
