deer

On my walk this morning, I saw a deer heading into the wetlands that are near the undiscovered country. It ran away with its white tail up. Then this evening, I was walking the same route with a friend and her daughter, and I said, "You know, this morning I saw a deer here," and we looked, and there was a deer there again! The sun was shining through its ears. It just stared at us, and when it left, it didn't raise its tail like a flag, it just ambled off.

I'm going to pick basil and make pesto.

Yeah, I could send it to you--just couldn't board a plane to bring it to you :-P

I wish I had had my camera, though I don't have a zoom so it would have probably turned out like a little blob in the distance--all the same, I'll take it with me tomorrow and see whether the deer comes back.

I meant to say earlier: returning from the Shelburne Hills run to Jim's place to get my car, as we drove up the long driveway there was a deer standing in the woods watching us -- quite unfazed. Mark sort of rolled his eyes and said, "Oh yes, say hi to Bonehead." Apparently it quite likes the place, knows there are no hunters in that liberal town/houshold, and it just hangs out in their patch of woods. It was there again when I left. Very elegant creature, despite the unflattering name.
