This afternoon, around 5 pm I was sitting in the lawn swing by the newly dug area of the pond ..Joel calls "the cove"....barely swinging..being lulled to sleep by some intoxicating fragrance..smells sweet, kinda like hay..but not sure what it is.

there is a cool breeze and I'm nearly in z land when I open my eyes and staring right at me, from the other side of the pond is a doe, nursing a little tiny spotted fawn, nearby another deer standing there..not sure if it was a doe or not or if there were more fawns..our girls usually have twins.

she watched me, i spoke softly to her, the fawn played and then nursed again, and then she walked slowly toward the cover of the woods to the North..I just sat there about another 1/2 hour, barely awake, enoying every second...with the turtles, frogs, dragon and damsel flies..what a beautiful sunny hot day.

i guess they know our voices and our smell..(maybe I need a shower)..anyway..they have always felt safe on our property, we don't do anything to bother them, and they get lots of food here..
 
This. Exactly this. This is what my therapist has been talking about. And now with a tiny ad:
