This is where the squirrels sit on the rails and look inside of the house at me.
This is where Nigel stands against the rail and decides if he wants to flip me off, vanish into think air, tell me his problems, or ask for a cup of coffee so he can smell the aroma of something a ghost can’t drink.
This is where we watch coyotes, turkeys, songbirds, and bobcats.
This is where I recently saw a fox on the deck, who looked at me for a few seconds before it ran back into the dark woods.
This is where I have my succulent plants.
This is where we sit and talk for hours, watch the stars, and bats, and humming birds, and solve all of the problems of the world.
This is where I watch beautiful sunsets.
This is where Vampires live, because we sure as hell don’t live in crypts or dark cobweb filled attics. Well, at least most of us don’t.
