I’m laughing out loud at the end. Delightful.

The answer is - Yes. I want to think, consider, dream & laugh. Thanks for delivering all of that! Am I a Magoo in the woods? (surely). What is the animals gait? (hopping? heel, toe?). I too have seen a black bear in the woods - I was incredibly brave! (or maybe not)

Tracking can definitely become an obsession. Enjoyed hearing of your time reading the stories in the snow. what a great way to connect to our furry neighbors right outside our doors.

I love this meandering meditation, so skillfully and beautifully written. The timing is perfect (who knew at the outset where you were going with this particular walk). These essays keep getting better and better.

I'm loving walking with you to wherever, but here particularly. Thank-you for the view. The tracks I find in my city are those of a tiny furry animal from the zoo (a meerkat (?) that I have never seen that must slip out through a crack at night) and who then chooses to sit on my car roof (I imagine because it is a safe and warm place) and then scrapes the sides with its nails as it slides down to race back to the zoo after hanging out there. One of my experiences of city tracking. Take care and write on.
