I saw a deer today while jogging, and I’m trying hard to hang on to this innocent encounter. The deer didn’t seem alarmed by my presence. It just watched me while munching some foliage. I felt an urge to lecture it, to tell it that it should be very afraid of humans because look at what we’ve done to the world. Instead I took its picture and carried on. Because that’s what we do these days.
