little lucky fox
but our little lucky fox was killed monday night. just before the storms. he got into the donkey pen and they killed him. just as they had originally intended when nick intervened. it was awful. and we have been quite torn this week. that little fox made such a bang into our lives that his death shook both of us to the ground. it has been nice being out of touch without phone or computer. it gave us time to be quiet and remember our two weeks with lucky as though they had been a lifetime.
we don't have many photos of him as nick's computer was also destroyed when the lightening hit our barn. but we have his memory and we hold the brief wonder of living with a fox.
no matter how hard a farm might try, death is still as raw to me today as it was when i first started doing this.
i hope it never get's easier.
i'll write more next week when i am able. for now, i just wanted to let you know.
