Just One Deer, Tonight


Deer along a country fence

Click on this photo to enlarge it, and you'll see a deer standing by the fence, looking at me. I wish I had a better zoom on my camera, but he's clearly visible. This is the same fenceline where I photographed four deer at sunset a few weeks ago.

I have seen a herd of about a dozen deer grazing in broad daylight a few times in this area. In fact, the day that I drove to town with James, we saw a big herd of deer across the road from this field.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
