Thank you for the outpouring of thoughts about the decision facing me. I spent the day with my stomach literally in knots, and then the decision rained down on me from above. Indeed, as many of you suggested, K's spirit played a big role in the decision. I have contacted the "other parties" in the decision, and I am waiting to hear back before I tell you about our next family member! I don't want to have to retract my post tomorrow if the whole wonderful thing falls through...
Black and white Sunday... A great idea. Somehow, however, I suspect that creators of this tradition didn't expect photos like these ones!
A mountain lion entered a clearing where I have a trail camera and immediately focused on it. It emits a barely visible red glow at night. I'm not sure if it's the infrared glow or a faint smell from the camera that attracts animals to check it out.
Now, I'm guessing that this is type of photo that was actually expected for Black and White Sunday!
