Today, I took a walk in the woods next to our house.

I was totally focused on watching where I was walking so I wouldn’t step in a rabbit hole, trip on a fallen tree or walk into a Pyracantha branch.

The silence was broken by a soft scurry through the fallen leaves...

the next thing I heard was a guttural sound and the loud flapping of wings…predator or prey.

I was quickly reminded that walking in the woods is like visiting someone else’s home.
