Yesterday I did two miles before work, and was rewarded with the sight of the magical tableau above: a young buck just raising his head at the sound of an approaching canine! Who knew these delicate creatures had ventured so far into the suburban landscape? This is the kind of wondrous experience that makes a daily walk in the neighborhood worthwhile.
Today, of course, there was a nasty little cold snap and the "daily walk" was the eight blocks round trip from the parking garage to work. But resolutional zeal will resume tomorrow!
