Beauty

I felt last evening, as the sun was beginning to set,that I live in the most beautiful place in the world!  There was such a dramatic sky…as weather was shifting…and the air was so wonderful.  Max and I played with friends at the off leash park…owners stood in circles and spoke as the dogs chased and wrestled, having been caving for days in the sub-zero weather.
While driving home, I could see a lone person walking with his two dogs down in the valley, very near the Bow River.  Alert, and noble-looking, a herd of at least twenty deer took pause, heads reaching, noses in the air…keeping watch over the hiker and his dogs…absolutely still…beautiful animals on a magical evening.
