Moment in Time

I stepped outside the front door this morning around 6 a.m. to grab a quick 2 puffs off my cigarette.  The snow was floating down covering the quietness in a blanket of white.

My mind was in neutral - enjoying the early morning quiet - when I heard a russling around the far corner of the hedge.  I lifted my eyes to see this big fat skunk working his way down the path right straight toward me.


I just stood there silent as the snow falling and watched him walk right up to me  - turn sharp left and head into the hedge beside my lil home and disappear, 

And I thought 'he must be returning from a night of partying' smiled and quietly backed through my front door..

Its always fun to catch wildlife in those quiet moments when they don't think anyone is watching. That's cool.
