The devil is in the details

Hi everyone,

Padding through the house this morning, I paused to appreciate the view of Goose Lake in the early light. It’s a scene I’ve observed countless times. I’m familiar with everything on the patio, the lawn beyond, the leafless trees of winter . . .

But this morning something was different. Do you see it? Out there beneath the hackberry tree? Let me blow it up for you. Please excuse the quality. Satchel Paige said, “Don’t look back. Something might be gaining on you.” I would add, if you’re a bird, “Don’t look down. Something might be waiting for you.”

Have a good day everyone.

David

    • It’s a cat, Susan. Sitting patiently at the base of the tree. I don’t know what it sees up there, but it’s prepared to wait if it means a chance for an early breakfast.
