I found a squirrel tail on the floor in the cellar, next to the washing machine. I think it is a sign. I wonder where the rest of the squirrel is. The cats are looking particularly pleased with themselves tonight.
I hiked Rattlesnake Ridge today. The green made my eyes water. There were many dogs, straining at their leashes. Whenever I heard choking and huffing, I knew another dog was behind me, attached to a human. At the top of the ridge, I ate almonds and squinted my eyes like John Muir must have done, off in the distance at all the fuzzy mountains and terrible trees. Then I swooshed out my primo walking sticks and caroused down again. I must make many more trips to the forest. Large pieces of nature everywhere.
