Sitting on the
edge of a field near Mt. Kathadin in Maine I witnessed an amazing
site. As luck would have it, my time in the quiet field gave way
to many deer gathering in this open space. I had an overwhelming
feeling of gratitude and deep respect for these wild creatures.
This was truly a spiritual moment. I am still moved by the beauty
and grace of this image, my good fortune, and the “deer” friends.
