In yesterday's post, I promised that I would tell you who was watching us while we were watching that spectacular sunset. We thought we were alone, but not really. First these two dogs came into the field. They let us know that the field was their place to romp and play and we were intruding. So we drove away. But on the way out, these two deer appeared from out of the corn, like wraiths. They stood on the path in front of our car and silently watched us. Then they turned and went back into the corn just as silently and gracefully as they had come. The rows of corn were so tightly packed, I don't know how they ever walked into it. The pictures are so bad because the sun had just set and it was getting dark. Had I really even seen them at all? But the pictures prove it, don't they? What only Phil and I knew was that while we were all watching each other, someone else was watching all of us. None of us were ever alone at all.
