full circle in the hundred acre wood


The deer live close to the house. It is their neighborhood, too. And yet, sometimes when I see them, I wonder later: was it a dream?

At two o’oclock this morning, I stood close to a window and listened to a bird just outside singing an exquisite song — one I have never heard before. Brewing coffee now, I wonder: was it a dream?

    I occasionally get this strange feeling about all of life. For a second or two, I’ll find myself questioning if it’s all a dream.
    It’s quite disturbing as the thought ransacks my mind.

    Edgar Allan Poe said “All that we see or seem
    Is but a dream within a dream.”

    Aw, the things dreams are made from…..


  4. Lovely image. You’re right, it’s dreamlike.
    We have the same thing with deer…but my feeling is more of a thrill of mixed joy and horror. It’s impossible not to respond to their beauty. But unnerving to come out in the morning and find that one has been in the flowerbeds next to the house, eating my supposedly deer-resistant plants.

    Love these snapshots of Longleaf.

    I have the same feeling whenever I see a deer by the road for some reason, love this shot.

    Thanks, Sherry — so nice to hear from you. I’ve been missing reading Inktarsia. Hopefully you’re writing “off the blog.”
