Early this morning, way earlier than it would be if I was my own boss, I pulled into the parking lot of my day job and there they were – the two baby deer. They did not pay me too much attention. I sat and watched them for a couple of minutes, expecting to see Momma deer but I never did. Perhaps she was home doing what mommies do – cleaning up after breakfast, paying the bills, shopping for school supplies, or preparing a picnic lunch for a special day with her babies. Whatever she was doing, I hope she did not end up having to get a “day job” outside the home. I hope she is still able to be home with her babies.
Today, Tuesday, July 30, is much less dreary – weatherly speaking. Momma deer and her baby showed up at lunch to check on me and hung their heads in sadness again (see photo below) as they saw me head into work for another day.
Someday soon momma and baby, I will just be here for a visit and some inspiration for my writing.
