In honor of Ethel



Deer season is almost over, and it appears that Ethel has lived another season. Martyn thinks it's my own wishful thinking that the deer I see each spring, summer, and then fall, always with young, is always Ethel- but he never bothers to take time to talk with her. Yesterday she came right up to the studio area, and I looked right at her ans said,

"Ethel?"

And she acknowledged me with her blinks. We communicated without words for several minutes.

You can read the story of Ethel here . And if you like that story you can buy my new chapbook called Mice That Lovewhich includes the Ethel story along with others.

Eating lunch today I saw a deer in our lower pasture... haven't seen any in about a month. I'm sure it's because of hunting season! Nice to see them back :)

Ugh, is there hunting around Apifera? I hope Ethel is Ethel and I guess you know it's her now. I guess I know that hunting has a purpose but I find it revolting anyway.

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
