Oh, Laura, THANK YOU! I won't reveal where "my" bears live, but they are beloved neighbors (now that I've locked up the garbage), and I delight in seeing them and their tracks. I am so happy you've done them justice in this post.

Thanks for this.

Fabulous post, Laura! I love it - I like it so much I forwarded th elink to my bear friend, Sherry Simpson in Alaska.


Oh I want one! (not a bear, a LAURA!)

Thanks Laura. Great post. We'd begun to have a healthy population of black bears in SC the last several decades, but I'm concerned for their future. Ran into someone who knows our Department of Natural Resources very well and he says the economic downturn has cleaned out DNR's enforcement division so not much poaching patrol right now-- "Not a good time to be a bear in South Carolina," my friend said. Also, this week I wrote my weekly newspaper column on now I-85 forms what amounts to a "Berlin Wall for bears" across the upcountry. They're killed more and more often trying to move east/west. So I hope they are healthy and happy in as many places as they can be!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
