the sun was setting. i was driving to the grocery store, rounding the corner of this little off-ramp in a place called 'celebrate virginia'. it's still a work in progress, but the idea is to preserve the beauty of the area. so it's a little prettier than most little off-ramp things. more like a random park way. i saw something in the corner of my eye, and there was a deer coming over the hill. only to be followed by another...and another...then another... there were 6 or 7 of them. and all of the sudden, they took off running. they were beeeeautiful. you could see the strength of their muscles moving beneath their skin as they glided across the steep embankment with ease. it is one of the most beautiful things i've ever seen.
and it definitely brought tears to my eyes.
creation is such a beautiful thing. still.
