  • I have never seen a shooting star in my life and I have never seen a live moose in its wild habitat. Or that was the state of things until yesterday.

    Yesterday morning driving on a tiny road through the Grand Teton National Park there was my moose - MY MOOSE! It fell down from the skies for me! It fell a few meters right beside my car window. where it - a cow - drank water from a tiny pool. So many cars had stopped that the traffic - organizing ranger did not allow us anymore to park, but the queue of cars was so long and slow that we came to stop right beside the very best spot of all the spots at that moment. I opened my car window and clicked my camera and even my husband who is a professional photographer and had his huge tele - lens ready did not get as nice a shot as I did.

    I am grateful. I will not complain for a while about the tragedies of life. or so I hope. Life sent a moose yesterday to a nearly blind lady, there must be goodness at the bottom of it all...or what do you think?

    Maybe as long as I am not dead the shooting star still also has a chance?
