There are many paths to Moominmama’s Memiors.  Some of them, if intoned in a suitably poetic manner, sound, well, poetic.  There is even an existential question at the end.

River Otters

I live on a small lake in the suburbs of Seattle.  I see lots of water birds, the occasional bald eagle, but this is first time I’ve seen river otters.  There’s a total of four — one’s underwater in this picture. I think the recent snow and ice prompted them to go adventuring and they ended up here.  It’s great fun to see them, but I hope they find their way back to a wilder place.
