Currently situated in Maryland close, but not too close, to the water. I can see hawks and goldfinches, and other birds large and small. There’s a skunk and a fox and a rumor of a bear that came here from Delaware. Bats. Lots of bats. Deer.

Once, I saw a massive owl in the woods, on the same night we think a wild pig tore across the path in front of us. I always thought I’d know if I saw a very large pig, but that time I was surprised both by how shocking it was, and how unsure I am it actually happened.
