Developing

I hear an owl.
(hoo... hoo-hoo)

I haven't heard one in our neighborhood since the first year we moved here.
It sounds beautiful.

Back then, there was still much undeveloped land around us.
(hoo... hoo-hoo)

Now, it has all been zoned, re-zoned, fenced in, dug up, and built upon.
Where will all the deer cross?

Makes you question the definition of "development."

I saw some quail in our yard this morning. Does that make you feel better?

I bet the trains still manage to get through. =o)

About a year ago I was at the bus stop with Joshie, and up by the Church about 8 deer ran across the road. It was coolest thing I had ever seen. :) I love the sounds of owls too.
