365 Project - Day 210 - "Morning Meeting"
July 29, 2010 - "Morning Meeting"
I arrive at work... about an hour before the store opens. During the drive, Holly and I have been talking about plans for Pyewacket's... about getting it up and running as an online store within the next month. Things are feeling good. Very good.
We begin to pull to the back of the store... and notice a lone deer standing in the middle of the empty lot next to the building. Standing... a mere 20 or 30 feet away. Standing... eating... paying us no mind. I grab my camera... open the window... snap shots... and she still doesn't move. I whistle... tap... and she still doesn't move. One quick glance at me was all I got. She looked... paused... then went right back to her breakfast.
And somehow things feel even better now.
I left work six hours later... and she was still in the lot, only now she was in the shade. Still there... standing... alone. No pictures this time... just a quick glance... a pause... a smile... and that was that.
Life is good!
