    Your story of the hawk and your grandmother moved me in mysterious ways. I have deer and bucks in my backyard every day in the middle of Arcadia with a bus in front- talking about signs. Their daily drama is far more interesting to watch than TV and there are strangely related stories in their lives and ours- it’s surreal.
