I saw a fox near the parking garage at my office the other day. We have a big pond back behind our offices, so we’re used to seeing geese and fish and turtles, and I even saw a pair of deer wandering through the trees back there one morning, but a fox? I was totally taken aback. It was beautiful, though, with a thick, bushy red tail. It was dark out, and he just popped up in my headlights when I came around this corner. We both stopped for a second or two and looked at each other, and then he ran off. I don’t really have anything smart or existential to say about it; it was just a neat little unexpected encounter in an otherwise routine workweek.
