Life is better with animals.

Or certainly more distracting, at any rate. Case in point: I got some extremely bad news last week, and essentially been crying ever since. Today, I was doing my crying on the bed, with my head near a window that has been open about an inch or two.
At some point, I turned over on my stomach and discovered myself face-to-twitchy nose with a squirrel that was sitting in my window box, and that had stuck her head into my house. All of 3 or 4 inches away from my face. My instinct was to reach through the window opening to stroke her. I didn’t get to pet her, but I brushed across her paws that were resting on the sill, and her tail, as she turned to flee.
It took just a short moment, but afterwards I found that my eyes were dry for the first time in days.
Of course, it all happened too quickly to take a photo, but I took these on another occasion, and who knows, maybe it is the same squirrel friend.
