RIP Ducks

Dear Ducks,
I send you on to your next-yet-to-be with a heavy heart.
I miss your sweet sounds and persistent attitudes. The slugs won't, though.

I think coyote came in the stole your breath and fed themselves well.

The truth is, I am a coyote keeper. They are an important part of the circle of life around here. Their habitat has been disrupted and that is why they pushed themselves into our yard. Overarching themes 'n all.

You were great fun. The companionship that you gave us and the special connection that you had with Scott was our joy these last few months.

Attachment. I appreciate the gifts that keep showing up around attachment.

Alright already.

Blessings for Francis Drake and his lovely hens. Cayuga Ducks rock my world.
