Gawd Gail, that was one of my favorite books as a kid! I never realized just how gruesome it was! Ha! Thank you for reminding me of it! You know what I was most struck by this morning?
How unaware I’d been of this going on night after night outside the realm of my senses and attention! As the dew and fog settled on this particular morning it was like the curtain was raised on a private show! :-) I felt privileged to see it.
