At the zoo

We have a small zoo in our town, and today we took a trip out there. My daughter and I fell in love with the Channel Island Fox; they are such delicate and perfect little creatures. We watched one sleep; its little face was exquisite. It was so tender and vulnerable; there was something very special about it.

Unfortunately, it is a threatened species that may be on the endangered list very soon. I know; it's not the only one. But it's the one I saw today, and it is the one that is real to me.

Sleep well, little ones.
