This morning I saw two deer in the parking lot at work. Not just on the fringes, but actually on the pavement and wandering gradually toward the trees. Seeing animals in pairs is supposed to be auspicious Feng Shui, but it was a somewhat surreal moment with these unfamiliar visitors against the backdrop of the now familiar concrete and buildings.
Driving to work, the cold morning breeze, and seeing large animals... I can't help but be reminded of the zoo. No one I know would still be there, but I wonder what it would be like to cross the lake one more time.
