The Unrelated, The Unexplained
Three things happened.
First–several months ago while driving a rural road, two deers leapt out from a stand of trees about three car lengths in front of me. They appeared to hesitate seconds and then decided to go for it–they crossed the road and disappeared into another stand of trees. I braked in time but, ironically, it was only then that I saw the sign with the jumping deer. I use this road often, many times at night, but I had never noticed this sign before.
Second– yesterday, I photographed my 11 year old grand niece playing soccer late in the afternoon. She loves the sport and often while we talk in her kitchen, as she talks about whatever we are talking about, she’ll unconsciously work on her foot work with a odd stuffed animal or toy left on the floor by one of her four younger siblings. Sometimes, she kicks it so hard it goes zooming into the next room.
Third, after returning home from the soccer match, my cousin Mary told me she’d gone to a movie while visiting New York City about Salvatore Dali, the surrealist painter.
Three unconnected events surfaced today in this image and remain unexplained.
Why even try?
