Silent Fellow Travellers

       I am always amused when I find that something else has travelled silently and unobserved in my territory.

      Last week as I was doing my paper route I suddenly noticed deer tracks down the sidewalk I was following. Yes, in the middle of a city residential area a deer had taken the sidewalk to go from someplace to somewhere else. I'm sure that it was seen by no one as it would have moved in the early morning hours. Interesting how we share our space with other creatures and few of us are aware of their presence. I wonder if they are aware of our presence or do they just ignore us? I some how doubt they ignore us as they have extremey keen senses of hearing and smell.

     So I enjoyed sharing my space with my unseen silent partner.
