It was cold, winter morning..And I don't even remember how I woke up. I was standing there, by the vast window of my garden, a soft carpet under me like a balm for my body convulse with conflicting emotions. It was a morning like the other I said to my pale reflexion in the window, and then...

...just looking up, obscured in part by the morning mist, just a glimpse of a presence, a movement.  There it was....him.   That thing...that stare.  That predator who knew me in my dreams, now, here in the flesh, pausing just at the rim of the garden.  Waiting.  Watching.   The wolf of my worst fears.  The dread of my becoming.  The being that had waited for my youth to arrive.  He knew I was budding.  It knew I was ripe.  He...it...whatever he was...this thing that had come into my mind....was now in the garden awaiting in flesh.  Somehow it had known.  It had been watching.  It must have been watching for years.  How could I have not seen it before! Once I had been so little.  Once I was unsubstantial.  Now I was going to be his.  He had come for it.  He had come for me.  It could be ignored no longer.  He was out there.   I was in here.   How long would this thin bubble of safety secure?  How much longer would this tiny veneer of separation protect?  For how long would my tender and vulnerable skin keep flesh from his mouth?  Should I give in...  Should I just remain still? What would it mean to be just flesh in his mouth?  Just then a bird flew into the window.  It lay there, helpless on the ledge.  It was so small.   Too small for the wolf.  The wolf too big and dangerous to risk me even thinking of rescue.  And so I turned." 

All this on a cold winter's morning.  She, just there inside the vast view of her garden.  A spark popped from the fireplace as she got up.  "Better to get nearer the flames",  she thought.  "Better to warm myself by the life of the hearth."  And so for the moment, she left the things of nature to nature.  "I still have that much left of my youth.  I am not ready for such thoughts as yet.  I can put this wolf off for another day or so, surely.  I'll be no one's meal just yet."   And she sat by the fire to warm her young soul as the sweeter things of another cozy day dawned yet again.

There is so much to this photo that I enjoy. I love the ambience it brings to my screen, as well as the comfort that spills from it. Down to the tiniest detail of that little deer toy (or whatever it may be) on the shelf. This image gives me an emotion that I thoroughly enjoy. Thank you.
