Little Known Fact About Me:
Monday, March 15, 2010
If I pass roadkill while driving, I close my eyes *very very briefly* and say a little prayer for the animal that once was.

Yesterday I saw a small deer lying peacefully near a ditch in my neighborhood - it could have easily been one of the resident grouping I see each morning on my way to the train, munching and wandering. It could be the one that eats my parents' landscaping each spring. It was lovely in its sleep, legs crossed daintily, it's eyes closed in peace. I slowed down so I could discern whether it might have still be breathing, but didn't see any signs of life. I fully understand the whole "circle of life" thing, but that doesn't make it a happy event. Sigh.
