RETIREMENT PLEASURES: WATCHING THE DEER GRAZE

Sep 28th, 2011 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Every morning now, several deer graze in our side lawn, just outside the windows of our library where SeniorCitizenJournal is composed. It becomes our joy to watch as they idly search for what morsels they can find. Our two dogs haven’t spotted them, so they go about their wanderings unperturbed.

Up the hill from us, there are even more. It is a bit further from the roadway, with less traffic and more wide open space. Sometimes there are as many as 30 or more feeding on what there is.

The peacefulness of the experience reminds one of how many don’t get to enjoy the quiet wonders of nature, get caught up in their day of rush and hurry and lose out on the chance to experience reminders of how beautifully peaceful a morning can really be.
