A few feet from my office window is this tree. An older, fatter squirrel used to pause here each morning and watch me work. This squirrel may well be the offspring of that fatter one. All the squirrels in the yard seem busier than usual today, gathering the hickory nuts that fell in last night's storm. Up and down the trees they go, up and down. Only this one pauses to watch me.
