Je t'adore

This little sketch really gets to the heart of me. I've always loved deer and the romance of the deep woods.  As a child, I pored over the magnificent  illustrations of Adrienne Ségur.  She often depicted magical forests.  

I now live in one.   It is a true gift when deer quietly step into our yard.   They are so lovely.

I have a friend who is of Ojibwa descent.  She recently told me that if you find yourself particularly attracted to a certain animal, then that is your totem animal.  C'est ça.  I knew it.

"Penser, c'est chercher des clairières dans la forêt.
