View from My Desk

My neighbor's large (pin?) oak tree—about 50 feet from my desk—is an on-ramp to the hardwoods canopy where the neighborhood squirrels spend their day in frantic activity. This morning, this little guy stopped for a moment's repose, long enough for me to catch him displaying a contemplative look: "What will I do today? Gather acorns or gather acorns?" My desk faces the window and I get to enjoy the wildlife all day with a simple tilt of my eyes from the computer screen to the natural screen framed by my windows. Nice.
