Down for a walk in the park with my boy, Romeo. It was good to see the water up a bit, just Sunday, I was thinking that it was low as I can recall in quite some time.
While there we chanced upon a herd of deer--8 in all! And a fine, and very shy, 6-point buck was among the group. They skirted the ridge for the most part, keep a watchful eye on us. Romeo was oblivious--too much to smell in the here and now to notice deer 50 yards away.
A parting glance at the last deer. Can you see her?
I was born on a bitterly cold end of January night in the year 1961. It was seven years to the day after the birth of Oprah Winfrey, and one year before the death of Robert Frost on that same day. Cool associations both.
I was the first child of older parents (my mother was 42). I love the color yellow. I am single, and fascinated with life.
