I really really try not to post the same subject twice in a row. Actually, I don’t think I ever have done that.

But today I did.

Mostly because I’m so excited that she’s back, so she deserves a second night slot on the blog.

I had some people ask me how I know it’s her, and I don’t really know how to answer that.

Her body shape is the same, and quite honestly, she treats our yard like it’s also hers. She’s pretty fearless; like we come with the territory, she understands that we live here.

That may not seem like a significant qualifier to most people, but add in the fact that she always has a baby around, which should make her more cautious, that deems her confidence and comfort around us unique. She’s so cool and casual; she’s never flustered by us.

Like in this image. She saw me watching her, studied me for a moment, and swished her tail and continued to munch (I always seem to photograph her with her mouth full).

And I just know. I don’t really know how to explain it.

I’m so glad she’s back.

This may seem silly, but she brings me a lot of peace. She makes me stop and enjoy the view, and her confidence in my presence makes me feel like I’m a part of something so much bigger. It’s centering.

What centers you? I’d love to know!
