if you are a person who wanders off into the woods then you have likely experienced the strange sensation that you were being watched . . . i know i have. i'll be walking along and turn around and there's . . . nothing. a couple of times recently i was in the woods and had that sensation and i turned around and once … once, i was certain i saw a little puff of snow. so i stopped and watched. standing very still. barely breathing. and sure enough guess what popped up out of the snow . . . .
a cold morning and the sun is pulling steam up off the river . . . the steam settles on all the plants, the wintering grasses, the trees, and th sun settles a soft tangerine glow over everything. needless to say i was late getting in to school!!!
