“I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.”                                                                   ~Henry David Thoreau



One of the greatest experiences a person can have is to make a connection with wildlife.  When this fawn looked directly at me, we were connected.  When she calmly went back to munching her leaves, it was a vote of confidence – a message that she was OK with me if I was OK with her.  I take that as a gift, and as a privilege.

Wildlife is welcome in my garden, and in my world.  We share this place, even if it can be a pain in the butt at times.  They were here before I came, and they’ll be here when I leave – in the meantime, we’ll walk these paths together.
