“If it were not for guests all houses would be graves.”

~Khalil Gibran

Earlier this week we had a guest on the deck.


It was just after dawn as I was preparing to fill the bird feeders which our guest had emptied.


I didn’t alert Molly as I wanted to have my own time with our visitor. Eye to eye so to speak.


We looked at one another. He considering if he should go up or down. After a few minutes of our silent communication, he decided I was not a threat. He made his way down the tree and wandered off to wherever racoons spend their day.

“Visits always give pleasure — if not the arrival, the departure.”

~Portuguese Proverb

Until next time
