She was so bold...so brazen....so confident...so sure.
For a moment - I wished to be her.
I wished to look someone right in the eye...to meet their gaze with my own.
To be brave.
She was so beautiful.
Her soft hazel eyes. Her perfectly symmetrical little ears. Her bunny nose.
Her blanket of soft sheep's wool.
I wanted to wrap myself up in her warm soft fur.
There are signs of new life - and old - everywhere.
It's such a gift....an honor.
To be here.
