I have been really horrible with the camera all week. I forget to take it everywhere, and I don't use it when I have it.
This morning, I planned on taking the camera and getting a shot at the top of the hill I have been walking. Instead, I forgot the camera, and something truly beautiful happened. The baby and I were heading up the hill after watching big L hop on the bus for school. The bottom of the hill is a natural wash, filled with vegetation and critters. It is not uncommon to see rabbits, bobcats and javelina. In fact they are pretty common. This morning however we saw a coyote. The coyotes were pretty noisy last night, but you don't generally see them in the day. The baby and I were quiet, I whispered to her, "look a coyote". Then we watched as he/she proceeded to look both ways, pause and then run across the street. We didn't see any other wildlife this morning except birds, but that was okay, because we saw a beautiful coyote living life and ignoring the human intrusion into it's world.
If that is magically mundane, I don't know what is!
