TUESDAY TAIL TALE: SURPRISE!

PORCUPINE IN TREE 2018 BARLEY DARTS

Why are you humans in such a damn hurry?  Are you even aware of your surroundings?  No, you’re not hearing things.  Look up!  I’m high above your head, at the top of this tree.  Now, you squint against the sun and ask, “What am I?”  Maybe, you even back away to a safer distance.  Well, I’m not a bird or a raccoon.  And I’m too small to be a bear cub.  So, let me give you a hint:  I’ve stripped away bark at the top of the tree.  Why?  I’m eating it.  Still guessing?  I’m a porcupine.  So, why didn’t you expect to see me way up here?

SATURDAY SNAPSHOTS: STILLNESS

“No domestic animal can be as still as a wild animal.  The civilized people have lost the aptitude of stillness, and must take lessons in silence from the wild…” – Isak Dinesen (pen name for Karen Blixen)
