Deer Tracks

The sun is shining today.  I felt it would be a Druidic sin to stay inside so I donned my winter gear and headed to the forest!  I spent a few moments with a birch tree but grew distracted with how active the chickadee population was.  Without so many deciduous leaves hiding them, birds sure stand out!

In the end, I found myself mostly engaged with deer tracks.  They were everywhere!  I followed a few until I couldn’t determine where they went.  It’s an interesting way to live vicariously through a Nature Spirit for a short time. You see where they pawed through the snow for a meal, where they defecated, and where they slept.  You see that they prefer to walk in certain places over others and you learn from them how to navigate in the woods.

As feline as I often feel, I cannot deny the pull the deer have on me as well.
