Autumn in NJ, part 2

In New Jersey I live a pleasant fifteen-minute walk from the local library, where I do a lot of my writing. I was on my way there last week, still enjoying the fall foliage, when what should emerge from these woods...

...but a pair of deer! They sprinted across these fields and then bore left, back towards the trees.

I live in what feels like a heavily populated area, so this wildlife sighting was a real delight. It made my day.

Quedlinburg next time. For real!

Wow. Bambi and Feline. In October too!

Nothing like nature, animals, and libraries to give you that "all is right with the world, Winnie the Pooh" kind of feeling.

The exchange rate was gorgeous yesterday!! Hope it continues to drop! :)
