Deerie Me

by wjw on September 22, 2021

Here’s a new friend I made over the weekend. The scarcity of people in the pandemic has made animals less shy around people, I guess, and she let me hang around for quite a while. This photo was taken from maybe ten meters away.

Kathy had a major home improvement project scheduled for the weekend, and I thought it a good idea to make myself scarce before a group of home improvement workers descended on our rancho brandishing noisy tools. As it happens the event got canceled, but my reservations were non-refundable, and off I went to Taos Ski Valley anyway.

The weather was sunny and warmish, with just a few of the aspen leaves beginning to turn gold. I hiked, ate at some of my favorite local restaurants, and took a lot of power naps. Also wrote and finished what I hope is the penultimate chapter of the next Praxis book.

But the highlight of the weekend was my new ungulate friend. I hope she becomes more wary around people before hunting season starts.
