Written August 29: I deleted social media app Facebook from my phone less than 24 hours ago. There was no dramatic change to my life last night because we were so busy getting ready to come up to the ranch. This morning, instead of having my face glued to my phone screen, I noticed the sun rising behind a bank of clouds, reddish from lingering forest fire smoke. Fog from last night's rain filled low lying places between the hills. I am watching a herd of bucks. Mule deer, five of them. One so young his antlers are barely there. They meander across our field. Relaxed. Glancing up at sounds, then returning their attention to grazing. Crows caw. I can hear the whir of their flapping wings. A young bunny hops by, cautious but seemingly comfortable with humans. The hummingbirds want their feeder refreshed, so I will end my morning musings here.
