Magic Monday: Encounters
It was 1:38 a.m.
We were driving through the frozen desert of downtown on our way back from a gig in Madison. There were no other humans, no other cars:
Just fog crawling out of grates and the heavy breathing of vents.
A fire hydrant had burst-- spewing water onto the street, creating in icy river through the intersection. As we stopped to investigate the new stream, a red fox came out of the shadows and onto the sidewalk.
The fox sauntered into the street and up to the edge of the hydrant spill to take a drink as it it were a brook in the woods .
She lingered for a few moments in the yellow street light.
My eyes were wide. A few days ago, I had drawn the Fox from a medicine deck. Fox is about camouflage, being sure-footed, moving gracefully through situations and adaptability.
I couldn't help but smile. I adore freaky accidents.
As we drove away, I wondered about what other creatures might be hiding in places we've forgotten about, what other secret magic happens while we're sleeping--
what other encounters take place that we'll never be wise too.
Dream on, Kittens.
